Pope excited by Clarets future

Published on: 25 May 2019

England goalkeeper Nick Pope is eager to help Burnley progress further under boss Sean Dyche, having signed a new four-year contract with the Turf Moor outfit.

The 27-year-old featured just three times for the Clarets last season due to a long-term shoulder problem, having been a member of the England squad who reached the semi-finals of the World Cup just under a year ago.

The shoulder feels good and I'm looking forward to coming back ready for next season.

Now fully recovered, Pope is excited for the future with Burnley, while knowing that he faces a tough battle with Tom Heaton for a starting spot.

He told his club's official website: "I am in a good place. The shoulder feels good and I'm looking forward to coming back ready for next season.

"I want to get back to where I left off and help the club build on the three years I've had here so far.

"Last year was a bit of a non-starter for me with the injury. It was frustrating and didn't pan out as I hoped after such a high the season before.

"But it's been a fantastic time here (overall) and I want to help the club to keep moving forward."

Pope, whose sole England cap to date came against Costa Rica, joined the Clarets in the summer of 2016 from Charlton Athletic and has made 45 appearances in all competitions since then.

Burnley are 7/1 to finish in the top half of the Premier League next season, with they can be backed at 13/8 to be relegated to the Championship.
