NICK Pope will return to pre-season training with Burnley on Tuesday and could yet be involved in the Europa League clash with Aberdeen on Thursday.

The 26-year-old has been on a break since his time with England at the World Cup came to an end just over a week ago.

Although he didn't feature in the tournament he was training with the Three Lions in Russia and Dyche believes he will be pretty much ready to go on his return to the Barnfield Training Centre.

Asked if he could feature at Pittodrie on Thursday, Dyche said: "We’ll see, I’ll make a decision on that. He’s had 10 days, he should come back in pretty much ready to go."
