Pope: Leaving Burnley was an end of an era

Nick Pope has spoken out for the first time about his move from Burnley to Newcastle, describing it as an "end of an era" at Turf Moor.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Pope discussed his £10m move to St James' Park - along with his excellent start to the new season.

"It's never an easy thing to go through especially in the manner we did at Burnley - it went to the last day and not being in it but then being put back in," he says. 

"It was difficult and it was the end of my time there and I didn't really get to see the boys - we were part of a team that has been together a long time and it's now all broken up, the end of an era.

"When I heard about the interest here I was over the moon, I was massively excited and it is sort of a reset you have to prove yourself again. I want to do that and take myself to the next level."
