Former Aston Villa captain Gabby Agbonlahor has slammed Arsenal defender Ben White.

The England international joined the Gunners in a £50million deal last summer from Brighton and forged a partnership with Gabriel at centre-back, making 32 Premier League appearances across the campaign.

He played Friday's Premier League opener with Crystal Palace, which Arsenal won 2-0, but was at right-back with returning loanee William Saliba preferred at centre-back.

"It's a waste of money what Arsenal paid for him. For me, he's not good enough," the pundit told Football Insider.

"To pay £50m for him, Brighton must be laughing their heads off because he's not better than (Adam) Webster or (Lewis) Dunk and he's not going to start for Arsenal.

"You can see it in a year's time. Arsenal will probably be looking to get some money back for him because he's not going to play at right-back and they've got two better centre-halves."
