England goalkeeper Nick Pope arrived at Newcastle United’s home today as he prepares for a transfer from Burnley.

It looks like Pope will join the Magpies for around £12million when he finishes a six-year stint with Turf Moor.

When fit, the keeper has been a constant presence for the Clarets and has picked up over 100 Premier League caps.

He was also on the fringes of the England line-up, playing eight games in the last four years.

Despite missing just two league games last season, Pope was unable to keep Burnley in the Premier League as they finished 18th on three safety points.

Pope would become Newcastle manager Eddie Howe’s second summer signing after the arrest of fullback Matt Targett, who was on loan at Aston Villa’s St James’ Park for the second half of last season.

The Magpies are expected to repeat their spending in January, where they bought more than £90 million worth of players to turn around their poor start to the season.

It could mean sacking some players, though Howe fights to narrow his side down to a 25-man squad without leaving key players out.

The experienced and highly regarded Pope could be an important in-goal presence for a Newcastle side who finished last season with a goal difference of -18.
