While the Premier League is on break, England’s Ben White was spotted exchanging sticky smooches with a tanned beauty while at a pool party at the Five Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The Arsenal defender is currently in training in Dubai and seemed to be making the most of his downtime.

According to The Sun, the 24-year-old was seen at the pool party engaged in a tete-a-tete with the mysterious woman in full view of onlookers. The pair was observed enjoying their cozy chat with White flashing a big grin on his face the entire time as the tanned bikini-clad woman would then go on fits of laughter. Then, in full view of everyone, "He nipped off for a bit and when he came back the woman went for a cheeky snog,” a party onlooker said.

The $16,000-a-week Arsenal center-back had just signed a $67 million contract with the national team last summer after having played with Brighton since 2016. His 5-year deal with Arsenal also includes an option to extend for a further year making this the third first-team signing by the Gunners this summer after White was called into the Euro 2020 squad to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold who suffered a calf injury. White made his England debut in a friendly match with Austria last June. 

Donning the No.4 jersey, Arsenal put 2 bids on the table that were initially rejected before an agreement was reached with Brighton. A sell-on clause was inserted before everything was settled and signed. 

In July last year, Mikel Arteta, Arsenal's manager explained how White was a top target for the team and was quite pleased to have completed the contract signing. He went on to say how White had been educated by two very good clubs from which he had benefitted well to become the strong talent he is today.

"Ben is an intelligent defender who is very comfortable with the ball at his feet and his style fits perfectly with us. And of course, he is still young, so his age and profile fits with what we are building here. We are all looking forward to Ben being central to our future long-term plans,” Arteta said.
