Boro place huge asking price for Burnley target
Boro have placed a price tag of £25 million on defender Dael Fry amid interest from Burnley.
The Sun claims that the Championship outfit are looking to place a huge fee on the player as they look to maximise profits.
Burnley have been keen on the defender for a while and had an £8 million bid dismissed last summer.
The Clarets returned in January, with an improved bid of £10 million bid which was rejected by Boro.
Sean Dyche is still keen on the 22-year-old who he views as a player with the potential to develop to a top performer.
It is understood that Burnley will look to bargain for a reduced fee with a string of clauses on top to increase potential profit.
If Fry makes the move, it would be the second major transfer between the two clubs.
Gibson made a £15 million move to Burnley 18 months ago and has endured a torrid time at Turf Moor. It remains to be seen whether Fry would want to follow a similar path to his former teammate.

Fry is currently injured and has missed Boro's last two matches.
