Nick Pope: Set for move to Clarets

Burnley are poised to sign Charlton pair Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Nick Pope with both players undergoing medicals at Turf Moor, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

The Clarets have so far been frustrated in the transfer market this summer, but they have agreed deals for Iceland winger Gudmundsson and goalkeeper Pope.

Gudmundsson impressed at Euro 2016 for Iceland as they reached the quarter-finals beating England on the way with a famous 2-1 victory.

Pope has been a long-term target for Burnley and they saw a couple of initial bids rejected for the keeper as they look to bring in cover and competition for No.1 Tom Heaton.

Charlton have been resigned to losing the pair after their relegation to League One last season and they will recoup around £3.6million for the sale of both players to Burnley.

The arrivals of Gudmundsson and Pope will come as a welcome boost to Burnley boss Sean Dyche as he plans for life back in the Premier League.
