Burnley have had an up and down Premier League campaign so far this season. While Sean Dyche’s men looked to be in serious trouble a few months ago, they put together an amazing run of results to go clear of the relegation scrap.
However, the Clarets have once again lost four games in a row, conceding 10 goals in the process, which has put them right back in trouble again. Dyche who is not afraid of chopping and changing the side, dropped Joe Hart and made Tom Heaton his No.1, earlier in the season.
Heaton’s performances earned him a recall to the most recent England squad, in the place of Nick Pope who was outstanding for Burnley last season and subsequently made Southgate’s World Cup squad.
With Pope looking like he was frozen out, there were a whole host of Premier League clubs linked with the stopper including Spurs who are in search of a goalkeeper this summer, with Michel Vorm set to leave the club.
Now, after Burnley’s recent poor run, it looks like Dyche will recall Nick Pope to the starting eleven again in place of Heaton. According to a report in the Daily Mail, Pope could start in between the sticks when the Clarets host Wolves at Turf Moor on the 30th of March.
If Pope wins his place in the starting 11 back, the Clarets might not be willing to let him leave at the end of the season.
