Leeds fans react as Ben White wins Play of the Month

It’s funny to think back to a time when we didn’t know if Ben White was being brought in as back-up or with an eye to starting in the first team.

Despite not playing as high as the Championship before, White has been absolutely brilliant this season, forming a rock-solid partnership with Liam Cooper in a defence that’s only conceded four goals in eight Championship games.

White has been rewarded for his outstanding contribution with the September PFA Player of the Month award and fans are delighted for him.

It wasn’t even close either – White got a massive 44% of the vote, beating Swansea City’s Borja Baston, who finished in second place with 16%.

Fans took to Twitter to congratulate their young star, with plenty hoping that Leeds can make his deal permanent in the summer.

Leeds don’t have an option so that will all come down to Brighton, and the way White is playing it might depend on what division Leeds are in next season. White is Premier League quality.

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans:
