Dael Fry Is Clarets Transfer Window Target
Burnley Football Club are lining up a £10 Million bid for centre-half Dael Fry from Middlesbrough Football Club, The Clarets manager Sean Dyche sees the commanding defender as Premier League material and has put out the feelers for a possible deal according to reports in two national newspapaers.
Fry, has come through the youth ranks at Middlesborough and has progressed to play for England at U17 & U21 levels, he was also the stand-out player for Middlesborough in their FA Cup clashes against Tottenham Hotspur this month.
An offer from the Clarets may prove to tempting for Middlesborough owner Steve Gibson, who is doing his best to balance the books at the Riverside and Fry could now be ready for the big step up to the Premier League football. A swap deal involving Fry and Ben Gibson is possible but that would not bring in much cash for Boro and would also cost them as Gibson’s wages are greater than Fry’s.
Gibson, who joined the Clarets from Middlesborough without much success, but Clarets boss Sean Dyche is hoping that a Dael Fry move would pay off instead. Ironically, Gibson could leave Burnley if the right offer comes in and he has already been looked at by a number of foreign clubs, but they want only loan arrangements.
