Read a report today directly quoting the owner of Brighton

The Brighton owner stating:

1) Brighton will this year make a much bigger loss than had been expected ; and they have NOT made a profit in any of the years since promoted to the premier league

2) Brighton have bought many players but sold only a few in the past few years and that needs to change now

3) and that Brighton certainly do have far too many centre backs

So. In other words Brighton are pretty much skint and they need to sell players particularly centre backs

Suggests that Leeds buying Ben White from Brighton is more than feasible ( even more so if Ben White puts in a transfer request)

However, if our budget is just 35million I can't see us spending most of that on one player.

Alf I think BW unproven in the EPL should not be more than 15 to 18 million

And if our budget is really just £35 million we need to prioritise on one quality striker and one quality central defender and in. the virus suppressed transfer fees £35 million. should be enough.

Sorry meant 45mill but same story.

i agree ben white is unproven in prem and to an extent unproven in the championship due to how good we were.

i think anything more than 18 is too much however i think they will want closer to 30 and liverpool and city might just pay that?

Just to put transfer fees in to perspective, Brighton paid out £20m on Adam Webster from Bristol City just 12 months ago so in my opinion I very much doubt they are going to let go of another 'Championship proven' centre back for any less than that figure. It makes no sense. Especially as Webster was not talked about in the same way as White is (future international)

If budget £45m, only realistic deal we could arrange for Ben White is say £25m plus add ons such as LUFC staying in the PL and him becoming an England international.

Zooky I have offered to drive the excitable bearded one to the AMEX with the cash stored in my van. White must stay a White.
