England defender Ben White has joined Arsenal from Brighton & Hove Albion on a long-term contract, both Premier League clubs announced Friday.

Arsenal did not disclose the transfer fee but British media reported that the deal was worth 50m pounds ($69.53m).

White started his career at Southampton before being signed by Brighton in 2016.

He broke into Brighton's first team last season following a loan spell with Leeds United's Championship title-winning team of 2019-20.

The 23-year old was one of Brighton's stand-out performers in the top flight, impressing in the heart of the defence during his 36 league appearances.

White received a late call-up to England's Euro 2020 squad and featured in the warm-up games, but did not make an appearance in the tournament as Gareth Southgate's side lost to Italy in the final.

He is Arsenal's third signing of the summer following the arrival of defender Nuno Tavares from Benfica and midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht earlier this month.

Arsenal, who finished eighth in the Premier League last season, will begin their 2021-22 campaign at newly-promoted Brentford on Aug. 13.
