Sky Sports understands Manchester United starlet Ezekiel Fryers is stalling over a new deal at Old Trafford.
The 19-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and as yet fresh terms have yet to be agreed.
The news has alerted a host of clubs to Fryers' possible availability in the summer if he fails to agree a new contract.
Fryers has come through the ranks at United and made his full debut in the first-team in the Carling Cup win over Leeds earlier this season.
The versatile defender has gone on to make five further appearances this term and he is highly-regarded within the corridors of Old Trafford.
United are keen to tie down Fryers to a new deal, but the defender is thought to have snubbed their initial offer as he holds out for a better contract.
Talented defender Fryers, 19, is coming to the end of his current deal and could be snatched away in the summer for a small fee, with Tottenham leading the list of interested teams.
