30-year-old Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope will have his medical at Newcastle tomorrow, and all being well will become Newcastle’s second signing of the summer, following Matt Targett through the door at Newcastle.
Nick has been brought in to challenge Martin Dubravka for the goalkeeper jersey at Newcastle, and he has told people that he has not joined Newcastle to simply warm the bench.
Here’s some of Nick’s top saves, with his strengths being in shot-stopping and coming out for crosses, and generally controlling his box.
His distribution is said to currently be the weakest part of his game, but that will surely improve under the guidance of Eddie Howe.
All top clubs need two top-class goalkeepers, and for an initial fee of only £10M – Pope is a bargain buy.
