Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is set to submit a surprise January bid for Brighton defender Ben White, who is on a season-long loan deal at Leeds.

This is according to The Sun.

The 22 year old has impressed Chelsea scouts who have watched him several times this season and the scouts have urged Lampard to sign the centre-back.

Brighton do not want to lose White but it is believed a fee of £25million may be hard for Brighton to resist. White will also be tempted to move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea scouts see White playing in the first team almost straight away and with a lot of football to be played across three competitions this season – he’ll certainly get his chance.
