Burnley open to offers for goalkeepers Hart and Pope

Burnley are open to offers for goalkeepers Joe Hart and Nick Pope.

The Daily Mail says Burnley will listen to offers for England goalkeeper Pope this summer, with Bournemouth among the clubs interested.

The Clarets will also consider selling Joe Hart at the end of the season as they look to revamp their goalkeeping options.

In Tom Heaton's absence through injury, Pope was a revelation for the Clarets last season, culminating in Gareth Southgate including him in his World Cup squad.

Heaton's re-emergence as first choice keeper is understood to be a factor in the decision, but there is a also a belief that Burnley would stand to recoup more from selling the 26-year-old given his age.
