Potter addresses White Liverpool links

Brighton boss Graham Potter has been addressing the rumours linking Ben White with Liverpool.

White signed a new deal upon returning to Brighton in the summer, after spending last season on loan at Leeds United.

Liverpool have scouted the Brighton defender over the last 12 months or so, but decided against making a move for him during the summer transfer window.

And Potter said on the recent reports:

“I think it is a bit like it was at the start of the season. All sorts of talk about him doing this, him doing that, and it is generated by outside, by outside of our control really.

“It is part of the football noise. The transfer window closed last week and we are already having conversations around transfer speculation. It’s just the way it is.

“I know he is level-headed enough to not let it affect him. I think at this level you have to know it is part of the territory.

“It is part of the job of being a footballer, while it’s part of what you have to deal with. Consistently all he has done is get on with his football.

“He has come into training, tried to be professional, tried his best, and tried to play football. I have no concerns about Ben.”

Before Potter added:

“I haven’t heard anything about that. Apparently if it comes in the media, it must be true, eh?”
