England manager Gareth Southgate downplayed reports that the former Brighton man had left after falling out with assistant Steve Holland.

White arrived in the Middle East on Saturday before taking part in his first session with the team on Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s friendly against AC Milan at Al Maktoum Stadium.

Ghana international Thomas Partey has also returned to train with the club after failing to make it past the group in Qatar, while US goalkeeper Matt Turner is back after being knocked out by the Netherlands in the round of 16.

All three could be used against AC Milan on Tuesday night.

Granit Xhaka, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Gabriel Martinelli are all expected to return to training this week before the Premier League return after Christmas.

Oleksandr Zinchenko was not part of the main group training session in Dubai as he continues to recover from a minor calf problem.

The injury is unrelated to the calf problem the former Manchester City man suffered in September and left him sidelined for a month.


The Gunners are confident the Ukraine international will be fit for the Premier League return, with Arsenal back in action on Boxing Day when they host London rivals West Ham.

Before that, they face two friendlies against Italian clubs, AC Milan in Dubai, before hosting Juventus in the Emirates on December 17. Ben White joins Arsenal in Dubai on the day of England’s exit from the World Cup after reports of ‘bust’ emerged.
