According to football journalist Phil Hay – formerly of the Yorkshire Evening Post – Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White had a medical with the Whites on Sunday.
Brighton centre-back Ben White to undergo a medical with Leeds United today. Season-long loan. #lufc

The 21-year-old, who can also play on the right side of defence, came through the youth system at Brighton and has made two first-team appearances for the club.
The bulk of White’s professional football has come out on loan, though, with spells at both Newport County and Peterborough United.
According to Hay, White underwent a medical with Leeds on Sunday ahead of a potential loan move to the club for the 2019-20 campaign.
It has been a quiet transfer window for Marcelo Bielsa’s side thus far but things now appear to be moving when it comes to arrivals, with Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Helder Costa also expected to soon arrive in Yorkshire.

The Leeds fans, as expected, have been on social media offering their views on Hay’s update. And a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
