‘A great signing’ – Tottenham eye January deal for player who could give Foyth run for his money

Middlesbrough have only conceded eight times this season in the Championship, and that has been in no small part thanks to the form of Dael Fry.

The 21-year-old defender has starred in Tony Pulis’ side this term and has made 11 starts for Boro since the beginning of the year.

His impressive performances have alerted a host of clubs according to TEAMtalk with Tottenham Hotspur one of the teams monitoring his progress ahead of the January transfer window.

Liverpool, Celtic and Chelsea are three other clubs reportedly keeping tabs on the young man, too.

Fry can play as a centre-half or a right-back and been a regular for the England U21s. 

The defender who came through the ranks at the Riverside only signed a new five-year deal back in April.

With Spurs keeping tabs on the young man, as well as a clutch of other top clubs, we asked our FLW writers if they thought a move to the London club would be a good one.

We discuss…

George Harbey

I can’t see Fry pushing into the first team in the future.

Spurs have their own youngsters to develop, the likes of Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters, and I can’t see him moving there.

It’d be a decent signing, but one I cannot see happening.

Louie Chandler

A great signing.

You would have to say that Mauricio Pochettino would be the best manager for him to play under given how much game time he gives to younger players.

With contracts for Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen set to expire, the 21-year-old could prove a very wise purchase.

Jacob Potter

He should steer clear of this move.

Spurs already have a number of impressive defensive options, and Fry would struggle to get in the starting XI ahead of the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.

Also, Juan Foyth is the player who looks like he’ll be the future of the club and Fry wouldn’t be anywhere near the Spurs squad that doesn’t give younger players much of a chance.

If he wants to further his development, he won’t move to Spurs.
