BURNLEY are closing in on the signing of goalkeeper Nick Pope after they agreed a fee with Charlton.

The Clarets have been chasing the 24-year-old all summer and they have now reportedly struck a deal with the Addicks, having previously seen a bid of around £900,000 rejected.

It looks like Burnley's first two senior signings of the summer will be coming from Charlton, with Iceland winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson set to complete his move for an initial £2.5million early next week after he returns from holiday in Miami.

Pope was beaten three times by Burnley on the final day of the season at The Valley as Sean Dyche's side won 3-0 to secure the Championship title against their already-relegated opponents.

The 6ft 3ins shot stopper, who started his career in non-league with Bury Town, will provide competition to Burnley's number one Tom Heaton, who returns to pre-season training next week after an extended break following his England duty at Euro 2016.

Burnley also have Paul Robinson on their books. The 36-year-old signed a new one-year contract this summer and played just over an hour last night as the Clarets began their pre-season campaign with a 3-1 win over Stade Nyonnais in Switzerland.
