EPL Football SPORTS GIST ARSENAL SET TO ANOUNCE BEN WHITE AS DEFENDER FINALLY COMPLETES MOVE By Admin Posted on July 29, 2021 1 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. Ben White has finally signed his five-year contract with Arsenal, after completing his medicals. Arsenal is expected to make an official announcement about the 50 million pound deal soon, which would keep him at the club until 2026. The Gunners had a £40 million deal for the centre-back rejected in June, and a revised offer of £47 million was also rejected before Brighton agreed to the £50 million fee. White, who started all but two of Graham Potter’s side’s Premier League games last season as the south coast club survived relegation with a 16th-place finish, has also been given a sell-on clause. With 46 goals conceded last season, White helped Brighton achieve the joint-best defense in the Premier League’s bottom half. The 23-year-old joined the Seagulls from Southampton in 2014 and has since made 41 appearances in all competitions for the club.
