Boro boss places £30 million valuation on Burnley target

Boro have placed a £30 million valuation on highly sought after defender Dael Fry.

Fry has been linked with a move to Burnley in recent days with reports suggesting that the Premier League club had initiated talks.

Burnley had an earlier £8 million offer rejected for the centre-back in the summer transfer window.

It was reported some days back that the Clarets had offered £10 million for the defender last week, which was also rejected by Boro.

Fry is a crucial player with the defender playing through the busy December period as the only fit centre-back at the club.

However, he came off last night's 1-1 draw at home to Birmingham City with a hamstring problem.

Speaking after the game, Woodgate insisted that the defender was not for sale unless someone paid £30 million for his services.

"Dael is not for sale."

"He's not for sale unless someone pays £30m."

It is highly unlikely that Boro will sell the 22-year-old given their defensive issues this season.

The club would also need to bring in reinforcements with Fry expected to be out for several weeks.

Augsburg centre-back Reece Oxford and Burnley defender Ben Gibson have been linked to the club in recent days.
