But he has yet to sign a new contract with Celtic and they are vulnerable to losing a player whose deal expires in two years.
Should Brighton make a concerted push for Edouard, they may well need to cash in on White to raise money.
Ex-Leeds striker Noel Whelan is in no doubt that his former club are planning to blow a sizeable chunk of their summer kitty on White.
“He is the No1 priority target, there’s no doubt about that,” Whelan told Football Insider. “From what I’ve been told Leeds want him badly and no-one will be surprised about that after his brilliant form last season.
“Can we get him? I think we can, especially if he pushes hard for a move and Brighton aren’t going to make him first choice at the start of next season.”
White was an ever-present in Leeds’ title-winning campaign and even stepped in to play in midfield when Phillips was unavailable through injury or suspension.
