Chelsea fans react to links with Leeds loanee Ben White

A number of Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Sun over the weekend suggesting that the Blues are plotting a January bid for Leeds United loanee Ben White.

White has been a revelation since moving to Leeds from Brighton in the summer. The centre-back has started every league game for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this term. And he has helped Leeds keep the best defensive record in the Championship.

Unsurprisingly, his form has not gone unnoticed. The Sun reports that Frank Lampard is keen on signing the 22-year-old and is planning to make a January bid for the defender.

The report notes that Chelsea could make a £25 million bid for White, who is seen as a potential alternative target to Nathan Ake.
