According to a report in The Sunday Mirror – 16/5; page 70, Burnley are confident of holding onto rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Nick Pope. 

There has been plenty of speculation regarding Hugo Lloris’ future, with the goalkeeper having just over 12 months left on his contract.

However, Football Insider reported this week that the Frenchman could be set to stay at Spurs and pen a new contract after holding positive conversations about his future with club chairman Daniel Levy.

If the Tottenham captain does leave, Pope is rumoured to be one of the options the North Londoners are looking at as a potential replacement. 

It was claimed earlier this month that Burnley are ready to sell the England international for around £45m this summer.

However, The Mirror now claim that the club expects the 29-year-old to stay put at Turf Moor for at least another season. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

I do not expect us to sell Lloris this summer. However, even if we did, I do not see Pope as the ideal option for us to go for. While the Burnley number one is a very good shot-stopper, he is really poor with the ball at his feet.

If it is true that we are looking for a progressive manager that likes to play out from the back, the 29-year-old might not fit in with his plans.
