The 30-year-old England international Nick Pope joins Newcastle United from Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

Newcastle United made their second signing of this summer transfer window. They signed Aston Villa left-back Matt Targett earlier this June after completion of his loan spell.

Moreover, Nick Pope pens a deal with Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United for four years.

However, Nick Pope was at Burnley for six years in which he won Burnley’s player of the year award twice. Moreover, he was PFA Premier Team of the Year in the season 2019/2020.

To the official website of the club Pope said: “Now I’m here, I can’t wait to get started. The deal has taken a couple of weeks to come to fruition but it got over the line really quickly, and I’m delighted to be here and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it.”

Eddie Howe added: “Nick is an exceptional Premier League and international level goalkeeper so I’m very pleased to be adding strong competition to a very important position.

“There has been a lot of interest in him from other clubs this summer, so I’d like to thank our owners and everyone behind the scenes for getting us ahead of the competition. I’m delighted he is joining us as we prepare for the exciting challenge ahead.”
