today 21:00 | Martin Dúbravek gained a strong competitor in Newcastle United. His name means Pope in English, and the presentation by which the club announced his arrival followed. Thirty-year-old English representative Nick Pope is coming to Newcastle United from Burnley, who dropped out of the Premier League last season. The price for the eight-time English representative is estimated at 15 million euros and he signed the contract for four seasons. Pope caught 141 league matches for Burnley, kept a clean sheet nine times in the previous season, but did not prevent him from relegating to the second highest competition. “I’m here now and I can’t wait. It took several weeks for the transfer to take place, but then it went fast,” said Pope, who is fighting for the post of unit with Dubravek. The 30-year-old Slovak caught 26 matches in the previous year’s Premier League and scored a clean sheet eight times. “I am excited that we have gained very strong competition in our staff for a very important position. Nick is an excellent goalkeeper at the club and national team level. This summer he was interested in several clubs, so I thank our owners and other people behind this transfer for that we overtook them, “added coach Eddie Howe.
