Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says Aidy White wants to remain at Elland Road and fight for his place.

White, who only signed a new three-year deal at Elland Road last summer, hasn`t been part of the eighteen in the squad for the last two games and his only appearance so far this season was in the League Cup clash with Chesterfield.

The club have already turned down a bid from Blackpool this summer for the clubs longest serving player, despite only being 21-year-old, and reports recently have suggested that clubs are keen to sign the versatile player.

Speaking on BBC Radio Leeds, McDermott said, “There has been a bit of interest in Aidy White but he wants to stay and fight for his place.”

White has made 100 appearances for Leeds since making his debut as a 16-year-old in August 2008, having come through the clubs academy system.

McDermott has said that he needs to offload players to be able to add to his squad and with just eight days remaining until the transfer window closes, White could be seen as one player who could be offloaded.
