Tottenham Hotspur have cooled their interest in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, according to The Sun.

The emergence of Paulo Gazzaniga as a more than capable deputy to Spurs skipper Hugo Lloris has led to the club against deciding that a move for the 26-year-old ex-Charlton player would be a good idea.

Gazzaniga has moved ahead of Michel Vorm in being Lloris’ number two and has impressed when given the chance to play during the current campaign.

Vorm is out of contract in North London this summer and could move onto pastures new following his demotion to third choice.

After recovering from a dislocated shoulder in January, Pope has found himself behind Tom Heaton and Joe Hart in the Clarets goalkeeping pecking order which has seen him only feature in the FA Cup this season.

The report claims that Pope is likely to leave Turf Moor this summer for a fee of around £10million with Arsenal behind mooted as possible destination to replace the retiring Petr Cech.
