Report: Celtic and Leeds United amongst teams chasing Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Nick Pope

Celtic Stands

Celtic, Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Crystal Palace, Hull City and Burnley are all reportedly interested in signing Nick Pope from Charlton Athletic.

According to a report on TeamTalk, Celtic and Leeds United are amongst the teams chasing Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Pope impressed for Charlton in the Championship this past season, even though the Addicks were relegated.

The 24-year-old looked like one of Charlton’s most impressive players, and coped with playing in the Championship with ease.

Crystal Palace, Hull City, Nottingham Forest and Burnley are all also interested in Pope, alongside Leeds and Celtic.

Leeds reportedly could allow Marco Silvestri to move on in the summer transfer window, leaving them on the hunt for a new stopper.

Celtic, meanwhile, could look to sign cover for current first choice Craig Gordon. At the moment Gordon does not have much competition for the number one shirt. 

Charlton are understood to be determined to keep hold of Pope, but the London side realise that they may be forced to sell, as they look to cut costs following their relegation.
