Brighton defender Ben white drops huge Leeds United hint on Instagram

Benjamin White may have provided further information as to where he will be playing next season with his actions on Instagram.

The young English defender who signed for Brighton & Hove Albion in 2016, spent the past two seasons on loan at Newport County and Peterborough United.

Having been chased after by Marcelo Bielsa last year, it seems like Leeds United might have finally gotten their man.

Subject to a loan deal, Ben White looks to have sealed the deal following his actions on Instagram. Along with the official Leeds United handle, White has also followed Leeds left-back Tyler Denton and Central Midfielder Kalvin Phillips. A done deal?

The Whites have a number of signings planned for the ongoing summer transfer window it would appear.

Wolves winger Helder Costa is one addition that Bielsa looks to make as he hopes to reinforce his attack. Ryan Kent was a prospect to bolster the squad for the push for promotion but it looks like the Liverpool player is on his way back to Rangers.

The most shocking of rumours however appear to be the legendary duo of Gianluigi Buffon and Francesco Totti along with French winger Dmitri Payet.

After 30 years with Roma, Totti stepped down as club director as his views were not considered. Would Totti really make a return after hanging up his boots in 2017? The Italian press sure do think that Leeds United have tabled an offer.

Adding to Totti’s possible future at Elland Road is another legend of the game in the form of Gianluigi Buffon. The 41 year old announced his departure from PSG but admits he doesn’t want to stop playing just yet.

With so many options available when it comes to free betting in the UK, the bookmakers are already offering odds on the Juventus legend joining the Championship side with Oddschanger reporting that Leeds United are now 7/1 to sign Gianluigi Buffon following reports in Italy that the Whites are interested in the goalkeeper.

A surprising turn of events as just a few days ago Leeds United were nowhere near to be seen while odds were being dished out for Gianluigi Buffon’s next destination in the world of football.

Porto was the most likely destination for Buffon with odds of 7/4 being offered while the likes of Parma, Barcelona and a return back to Juventus were also the options according to bookies.

It would make sense for Payet to join Marcelo Bielsa again. It was under Bielsa that Payet rose to the highest level of his game and a reunion would not be the most surprising thing in the world. However, the high wage demands would cause a problem for the particular transfer.
