The former right-back said it was too early for that but admitted it was heading in the right direction.
Dixon said: “I’m not so sure, they obviously have a long way to go, but we’re starting to talk about White and Gabriel in that partnership because the centre-back position is important and all about partnerships.
“I was lucky to play enough with two or three of the best in Martin Keown, [Steve] Bould and [Tony] Adams so I think that protection that they get from Partey and Xhaka is really valuable.
“We had [Emmanuel] Petit and [Patrick] Vieira in front of our back four, but again it is all about partnerships.”
