Kalvin Phillips has replied to an Arsenal fan after the Gunners supporter Tweet about Ben White’s reportedly imminent move to North London. England star White is said to be close to joining Mikel Arteta’s side. White, of course, is close friends with Phillips after playing together at Leeds.

White, 23, has been incredible over the past couple of seasons. Playing all 49 matches of Leeds’ 2019-20 campaign in which they gained promotion, he then returned to Brighton and starred last term. Despite being used in numerous positions, he has now wormed his way into the England squad.

Now, White is on the verge of completing a £50million move to Arsenal . Football London say Arsenal ‘look set to complete a deal’. Well-followed Arsenal fan Jim Howson, posted on Twitter that he has reverted to a picture of himself, after previously having White as his profile picture.

What has Phillips said in response, amid reports Arsenal are about to sign White?

Arsenal are not particularly in need of a central defender but Mikel Arteta has seemingly decided to spend big on White. David Luiz has departed, leaving Pablo Mari, Gabriel, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers and William Saliba as options. White’s arrival might see others leave.

Replying to Arsenal fan Howson, Phillips posted a seven-word message – stating you can not get tired of White. Make of that, what you will, amid the reports that Arsenal are closing in on the two-time England international.
