The 22-year-old who joined Brighton and Hove Albion in 2016 is currently on loan at Championship table-toppers Leeds United.
White has been a stalwart in defense with Leeds having the best defense in the Championship having conceded 21 goals in 26 matches.
The youngster has made 29 appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side including all 26 matches in the League.(h/t Whoscored)
White is yet to play for Brighton and has worked his way up the English footballing pyramid by making use of the loan system.
White got his first taste of senior football in the fourth tier of English football at Newport County in 2017-18. He made 52 appearances for the club and won the player of the year award.
His performances led to him spending 2018-19 on loan at League One side Peterborough United.
The youngster continued his rise up the ranks by going on loan at Championship side Leeds United. His impressive performances have seen him become a lynchpin in the Leeds defense as the Whites push for a return to the Premier League.
AT just 22, White has both the experience and potential to shore up the Spurs defense as Mourinho looks to rebuild the squad.
With the loan deal set to last till the summer, a deal in January is unlikely to happen.
