Spurs have been frequently linked with a move for Clarets goalkeeper Nick Pope, prompting speculation that Sean Dyche would do well to keep hold of the England international this summer.

However, as per Football.London, Burnley stand a strong chance of retaining the 28-year-old with the North London club unlikely to launch a swoop.

The report claims that there are only two scenarios in which the former Lyon man could leave.

A big-money offer could tempt Spurs into selling, though this is highly unlikely given he has just one year left on his contract.

Lloris would need to kick up a fuss in an attempt to force through an exit, which is also improbable.

In addition, Burnley’s £35million asking price for Pope does not fit Spurs’ transfer policy of buying younger players with potential market value.

Here are the latest transfer headlines surrounding Burnley and their Premier League rivals:
