Wilder confirms Middlesbrough set 'fair price' for Tottenham target Spence

Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder admits Djed Spence wants to leave the club this summer.

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte wants to recruit the 21-year-old to play at right wing-back.

And Wilder has said Boro have set a 'fair price' for the Englishman, with Borussia Dortmund and AS Roma also interested.

He told BBC Radio Tees Sport: "Well we want the going rate. The negotiators, with my input, we've set a price and a fair price. We don't want to hold anybody back.

"Djed has made it clear that he wants to go play in the Premier League, he's earned that opportunity which he has done. You cannot get away from the fact that he's had an incredible season and with that comes interest but it has to be at that right price.

"If that happens then I'm sure we'll all walk away happy with the deal.

"We've got good players underneath, as we've talked about in terms of Izzy Jones and his progression last season.

"We've got a player who has had a fabulous season and got his rewards for that in terms of a big move and we've got the going rate for the England U21 top right wing-back of English descent."
