Neil Warnock dismisses Premier League interest in Boro defender

Premier League side Burnley are interested in signing the Middlesbrough defender, who has become an integral part of the Boro team this season.

Middlesbrough FC manager Neil Warnock has dismissed the possibility of defender Dael Fry leaving the club, as interest continues to grow from Premier League side Burnley.

Fry has become an integral part of Warnock's Middlesbrough team, and Warnock has revealed he has already discussed with Fry how important he is to the team.

Burnley are reported to be interested in the 23-year-old as they seek a replacement for James Tarkowski who is set to leave the Premier League side this summer transfer window.

Warnock is not ready to let Fry leave, and he has laughed off the reported £10 million figure coming from Burnley.

"I don't think Steve Gibson would sell Dael Fry for any sort of offer. Steve is like me, if I'm managing here he wants me to be successful. He knows Dael Fry is a very important part of that," Warnock said.

"Clubs have had their opportunities in the past and have gone for other players. I've said to Dael, if you think you're going anywhere next year forget it pal, I'm here, you're here."

"I'm not anticipating losing him at all."

I saw the figures mentioned, I mean that wouldn't buy his left lace, let alone his body.
