NEIL WARNOCK has laughed off Burnley’s reported interest in Dael Fry – and claimed the figures that have been suggested this week would barely buy the Middlesbrough defender’s bootlace.

Having had a number of approaches for Fry rebuffed in the past, Burnley have been linked with a renewed £10m approach for the Teessider.

With Ben Gibson and James Tarkowski set to leave Turf Moor this summer, the Clarets will make the acquisition of a new centre-half a key summer priority.

Fry remains close to the top of their list of targets, but having held a number of discussions with Steve Gibson over his summer plans, Warnock is confident the 23-year-old will not be going anywhere this summer.

And even if Boro did decide to sell, it would take a lot more than £10m to prise Fry from his hometown club.

Warnock said: “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.”
