After many first-class seasons at Burnley, Nick Pope has earned the right to fight for more than just relegation. The goalkeeper has joined Newcastle United. The Magpies have been reinforcing their squad for some time now thanks to their new ownership and they have signed a goalkeeper of guaranteed quality.
When fit, the keeper has been a constant presence for the Clarets and has picked up over 100 Premier League caps.
He has also been on the fringes of the England setup, playing eight games across the past four years.
The experienced and highly-rated Pope could be a key presence in goal for a Newcastle side that finished last season with a goal difference of -18.
Nick Pope has signed a four-year contract with Newcastle, which runs until 2026, with an option to extend his contract to 2027. The board have shown clear confidence in him and the goalkeeper, smiling, posed on the club’s social networks signing the contract that binds him to the club he will be defending from now on.
