Sources: Middlesbrough standing firm as Southampton and Wolves circle 23-year-old

Middlesbrough are unlikely to sell Dael Fry this summer despite Southampton and Wolves showing late interest in the centre-back, Football League World understands. 

Fry has featured in both Middlesbrough’s fixtures in the Championship so far this season, helping Neil Warnock’s side to four points from clashes with Fulham and Bristol City.

The 23-year-old continues to excel at the Riverside Stadium and is, understandably, catching the eye of Premier League clubs.

Football League World understands that Middlesbrough are determined to keep Fry in the remaining 12 days of the transfer window, despite Southampton and Wolves showing late interest in him.

Southampton have recently lost Jannik Vestergaard to Leicester City and are looking to replace him, whilst Wolves are aiming to evolve as a squad under Bruno Lage.

The pair’s pursuit of Fry, though, is unlikely to get off the ground between now and the end of the summer, as Boro build towards a push for the play-offs under Warnock.

Tonight, they take on Queens Park Rangers at the Riverside Stadium, with the aim of building on the four points that they’ve posted so far.

Fry will be expected to be involved in the heart of defence as he rapidly approaches 150 appearances for his boyhood club.
