Fri 30 July 2021 | 16:32

Arsenal have signed England defender Ben White from Brighton on a £50 million deal.

 

Ben White

, who replaced the injured

Trent Alexander-Arnold

in Gareth Southgate's squad for Euro 2020, has signed a four-year contract with

Arsenal

that could be extended for another year.

Mikel Arteta said:

"Ben was a top target for us and it's great that we've completed his signing. Ben has been educated with two very good clubs, Brighton and Leeds, in recent seasons. He has benefitted well from two very good coaching set-ups and has shown with both Brighton and on loan with Leeds what a strong talent he is

.

"Ben is an intelligent defender who is very comfortable with the ball at his feet and his style fits perfectly with us. And of course, he is still young, so his age and profile fits with what we are building here. We are all looking forward to Ben being central to our future long-term plans.

The centre-back had an acceptable performance with Brighton last season and played in 39 matches for them. He will wear No. 4 at Arsenal.
