Pope linked with Valley exit
Pope linked with Valley exit
The Nick Pope situation is intriguing. The 24-year-old keeper is contracted to the Addicks until 2018, and talks began earlier in the year about an extended deal.

This was before Pope came back into the team. He has thrived under Lee Turner, and showed his best ever form at The Valley at the end of the season.
Pope desperately wants to play regularly, and a move to Turf Moor as Tom Heaton’s back-up does not seem ideal, though the financial package would be extremely tempting.
From Burnley’s point of view, is Pope the ideal option for them? If Heaton is seriously injured early on, the Clarets would be relying on a novice keeper with no Premier League experience. Not an ideal situation for a newly promoted side.
The speculation will certainly strengthen Pope’s hand if he wants to negotiate a new deal with Charlton.
There are signs that Burnley may be changing tack. The Birmingham Mail has reported that the Clarets are interested in West Brom’s Welsh international keeper, Boaz Myhill.
Myhill is 33-years-old and has a year left on his contract at the Hawthorns. The Baggies may be tempted to cash in now.
Myhill has won 19 caps for Wales and cost £1.5million when he signed from Hull in the summer of 2010.
