As well as Celtic, Fry is understood to be attracting interest from Chelsea, Tottenham and Bournemouth.

The 21-year-old, a product of Middlesbrough’s youth academy, has made 13 appearances this season having flourished in Tony Pulis’ 3-5-2 formation.

Standout performances at club level have also led to international recognition, with the youngster a regular in the England Under-21 squads. He featured against Scotland at Tynecastle recently.

Despite the interest, Middlesbrough are thought to be reluctant to let go of one of their prize assets.

Fry signed a new five-year deal at the Riverside Stadium earlier this year and is understood to be happy to remain on Teesside.
