The defender, whose loan spell at Elland Road came to a close at the end of last season, has been linked with a move away to several clubs including Leeds, and Liverpool as clubs jockey to secure his signature.

An account called NothingButLUFC has created an online petition with the message:
“Sign this to #FreeBenWhite from the shackles of Brighton & Hove Albion to join Leeds United.”

White has become a favourite amongst Leeds fans who are desperate to bring him back to what his ‘new home’ at Elland Road.

FreeBenWhite.com has been set up with a simple message that says “No. Ben White is not free yet.”

More than 10,000 fans have thrown their support behind the campaign. But it will take more than just fans and retweets – Brighton have already turned down two offers for White from Leeds United of £18.5m and £22m for the player.
