The Brighton and Hove Albion are amazed by the progress Ben White has made after moving to Leeds United on a loan move. The championship team made White the central mainstay in their defence after his summer loan move. The 21-year-old has made fantastic progress under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa. Brighton and Hove Albion have always considered White as a player who could succeed in the first division rather than just being a championship player.
However, the club did not expect such swift progress by the defender who is now valued at more about 20 million Pounds. Seagulls are readily waiting for White to join them in their first team as soon as he finishes his loan at the end of the season. Brighton blocked Leeds united efforts to put a clause in a contract for a permanent sign at the end of the loan move. White before this had successful loan moves with Peterborough United and Newport County.

Leeds City Council has released a new report over gambling. The report states that a problem of gambling is prevailing in the city, and it has put over 30,000 people at risk. The most at-risk people are those with low income, especially the young people and adults or older generation dealing with mental health issues.

GamCare, Leeds City Council and Leeds and York Partnership NHS foundation trust collaborated for the clinic. Also under a schedule 9 agreement, the Victoria Gate Casino has partially funded the clinic.
