Newcastle United have agreed a fee in principle for Nick Pope with Burnley, The Athletic understands.

The goalkeeper is now set to undergo a medical at the north east club. It is hoped that Newcastle's deal to sign Pope will be completed by the end of the week.

Pope, 30, has established himself as first-choice at Burnley during his six-year stint at Turf Moor. However, the club were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season and Newcastle have moved to bring him in.

Soham-born Pope has made eight appearances for England's senior side and was named in the squad for their recent Nations League games.

The arrival of Pope will be part of an effort to rejig the goalkeeping options at Newcastle ahead of the new season. The Athletic reported on Tuesday that Newcastle's Freddie Woodman is on the cusp of a move to Preston.

Pope is expected to provide genuine competition to Martin Dubravka, who was the undisputed No 1 last season.
