Brumbies hang on to clinch Super Rugby AU title The Brumbies confirmed their domestic superiority in Australian rugby with a 28-23 victory over the Queensland Reds to clinch the Super Rugby AU title in Canberra on Saturday.
Chelsea the latest club to be linked with Brighton’s Ben White
Ben White is a product of Brightons youth system.
And whilst the now 22-year-old made his senior debut for the Seagulls back in 2016/17, White has since failed to feature for Brightons first-team.
Instead, the central defender, who can also play as a defensive midfielder, has been farmed out on a series of loans.
The latest of those loan stints came this past campaign and was by far Whites most impressive.
The Englishman spent the entirety of the 2019/20 Championship campaign on loan at Leeds United.
Leeds would, of course, secure their long-awaited return to the Premier League recently, winning the Championship by a considerable margin.
And White would feature in all 46 of Leeds league outings, helping the Yorkshire-based club keep the tightest defence in the division.
As a result, it should come as little surprise to hear White is attracting interest from a number of Premier League sides.
White has returned to his parent club Brighton, but Leeds are seemingly keen to extend the stoppers stay at Elland Road, with it claimed recently that the Seagulls have rejected a £22m bid from Leeds.
Premier League champions Liverpool have also been named as an interested party.
Now though, on Sunday, yet another Premier League outfit are been tipped to make a move for White.
According to the Sun, Chelsea want to hijack Liverpools move for the Brighton defender.
It has previously been claimed that Frank Lampard needs to move on one of his current central defenders before bringing in a fresh addition and the report from the Sun on Sunday claims the Blues are willing to sell Antonio Rudiger to fund a deal for White.
However, it is added that Graham Potter wants to keep White, who is tied down at the Amex till 2022, and hand him a starting berth next term.
