Arsenal signed defender Ben White to a long-term contract on Friday after luring the England center back away from Brighton, which described the transfer fee it received as a club record.

The teams did not disclose details but it was widely reported the fee was 50 million pounds ($69.5 million), and the length of the contract five years.

The 23-year-old White was a member of the England team in the European Championship after 36 Premier League appearances last season for the south-coast club.

“Ben has been a key target this summer,” Arsenal technical director Edu said. “He has so many qualities which make us so excited he’s joining us. Ben’s a young English player with a great future. He’s very strong defensively, good on the ball with a great passing range.”

White had a breakthrough season on loan with Leeds in 2019-20, when Marcelo Bielsa helped them to earn a promotion to the Premier League. White led Brighton in minutes played last season.
