Nick Pope

Position:
Goalkeeper
Date signed:
23rd June 2022

England international goalkeeper who signed from Burnley in June 2022.

Newcastle United signed England international goalkeeper Nick Pope from Burnley in June 2022, for an undisclosed fee.

The Soham-born shot-stopper had spent the past six seasons at Turf Moor, twice winning Burnley's player of the year award and helping the Clarets to qualify for Europe in 2017/18.

He was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year in 2019/20, when he kept 15 clean sheets throughout the campaign, and made history last year as the first goalkeeper to keep clean sheets in his first six games for England.

He has signed a four-year contract at St. James' Park and became Eddie Howe's second signing of the summer, following Matt Targett, who joined United on a permanent deal earlier the same month following a successful loan spell last term.

Pope started his career with boyhood club Ipswich Town before dropping into non-league with Bury Town. From there, he joined Charlton Athletic before - following a series of loan moves - signing for Burnley in the summer of 2016, making a total of 155 appearances and firmly establishing himself as one of the country's best goalkeepers.

The 30-year-old said: "Now I'm here, I can't wait to get started. The deal has taken a couple of weeks to come to fruition but it got over the line really quickly, and I'm delighted to be here and I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into it."

Head coach Eddie Howe added: "Nick is an exceptional Premier League and international level goalkeeper so I'm very pleased to be adding strong competition to a very important position.

"There has been a lot of interest in him from other clubs this summer, so I'd like to thank our owners and everyone behind the scenes for getting us ahead of the competition. I'm delighted he is joining us as we prepare for the exciting challenge ahead."
