Albion will tell suitors they are relaxed about Ben White’s contract situation – and have no intention of selling him.

The club continued to show their eye for the future by yesterday announcing new deals, through to June 2024, for both Aaron Connolly and Steven Alzate.

That followed the arrival of experience in free agent Adam Lallana and bargain buy Joel Veltman, both on three-year contracts.

Veltman cost about £900,000 from Ajax and covers right-sided defensive areas preferred by White.

However, The Argus understands Albion will also look to improve White’s terms after his impressive loan season at Leeds.

At the same time, they believe he is on a decent contract already and are said to be “pretty relaxed” about the situation.

The message from Albion continues to be they do not need to sell White and are not going to sell him.

White is under contract until 2022.

Connolly scored the goal at Burnley which secured 15th place and an extra £2.4 million in prize money.

Technical director Dan Ashworth said: “It has been a breakthrough season for Aaron but he is always looking to improve every aspect of his game.

“His new contract will give him stability and the opportunity to really develop with us.

“We’re looking forward to working with him and helping to make him an even better player.

“Steven made great strides this season until his injury and his attitude and commitment are a great example to the younger players at the club.”

Albion under-18s defenders Ayo Tanimowo and Sam Packham have signed one-year professional deals, each with a year’s option.
