Newcastle in talks with Burnley over Pope deal

Newcastle United are in negotiations with Burnley over the signing of goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Sky Sports News reported last week Eddie Howe was interested in the England goalkeeper and talks are now well under way.

It is understood Pope is keen to remain in the Premier League with an eye on his England place at the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

The 30-year-old, who was named in Gareth Southgate's most recent England squad, would be viewed as an excellent addition to Newcastle's goalkeeping ranks.

Talks are also continuing for Sven Botman and Hugo Ekitike, though Newcastle are prepared to move onto other targets if progress is not made with either player soon.
