Burnley ‘could make a move for Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’ if they sell Nick Pope over the summer
England international Pope is valued by the Clarets at around the £45million mark
The Sun report that Ramsdale, 22, would be available for around half the Pope valuation. The Blades bought him from Bournemouth last year for £18.5m following the Cherries’ relegation into the Championship.
Pope is set to be in the England squad for this summer’s European Championship and will provide back-up to Gareth Southgate’s favoured No 1 Jordan Pickford.
He has impressed for Burnley this season and isn’t short of admirers at the big clubs in the Premier League.

Heaton, 35, came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford though never made a first-team appearance for United.
