'Remarkable' - Exclusive: Michael Brown thrilled by key Leeds player update
Michael Brown has been left raving after Brighton boss Graham Potter confirmed Ben White will remain on loan at Leeds United for the rest of the Championship campaign.
The former Leeds and Tottenham midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has lauded the 22-year-old for his “remarkable season” at Elland Road.
Speaking to the media earlier this week, Potter confirmed that all of Brighton’s loaned-out players, including White, would remain with their current clubs until the end of their respective seasons.

Brown believes the Seagulls have made the right decision letting White see out his time in Yorkshire, admitting he is excited about the centre-back’s potential.
Brown told Football Insider: “He wants to carry on playing football. He’s had a remarkable season, why would he not want to continue and try win the league?
“I think with regards to Brighton, they’ll want him playing and to get as much experience as possible under his belt and keep doing as well as he has been.

“He’s Brighton’s player, they’ve got control of him, all he can do is keep doing as well as he can and hopefully things fall into place. He’s been outstanding this season and I’m looking forward to watching his career develop.”
White has been a mainstay for Marcelo Bielsa this season, playing every single minute of the club’s Championship campaign.
He has just two first-team appearances under his belt for Brighton and was sent on loan to Peterborough and Newport County in recent seasons.
