Leeds United have seen their bid for defender Haydon Roberts knocked back by Brighton & Hove Albion, according to reports.

The 18-year-old has made just two senior appearances for the Seagulls, both coming in the Carabao Cup.

However, according to Sky Sports Transfer Centre (see 14:47) the centre-back’s ability has caught the eye of Leeds.

It’s claimed that the Yorkshire side made an offer a fortnight ago but that it was rejected by the Sussex club.

Brighton reportedly have no intention to sell the England Under-18 international and are also not looking to loan him out at this stage.

Graham Potter’s Brighton want to keep hold of Roberts.

Earlier this summer, Marcelo Bielsa had three offers for fellow Brighton defender Ben White rejected.

The 22-year-old played a key part in helping the Whites to promotion last summer but has since signed a new contract to stay with Graham Potter’s side.
