Leeds, Palace, Burnley and Celtic chase Charlton’s Pope

Nick Pope: Set for move to Clarets

Charlton goalkeeper Nick Pope is attracting interest from the likes of Leeds, Crystal Palace, Celtic and Burnley, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Pope was one of the rare shining lights for Charlton in a disappointing season which saw them relegated from the Championship.

The highly-rated custodian made 28 appearances in all competitions for Charlton this season and his impressive performances earned him a lot of plaudits.

Pope’s showings have not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid with the likes of Palace, newly-promoted Burnley, promotion hopefuls Hull, Nottingham Forest and Scottish champions Celtic all keeping tabs on the keeper. Leeds could also be in the market for him if they decide to allow often-criticised No 1 Marco Silvestri to move on.

The six clubs are all in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements this summer and Pope is thought to figure highly on their wanted lists.

Charlton are reluctant to lose Pope, but are bracing themselves for offers for the keeper in the wake of their relegation to League One.
