impact of loans

Goalkeeper Nick Pope has credited his past loan spells as “massive” after securing a move to Newcastle United.

Pope inked a four- time deal with the Premier League titans for a reported£ 10m figure on Thursday, ending a six- season stay with Burnley, who were relegated from the top– flight last month.

The 30- timeold‘s switch furthers a remarkable career progression, which began in the professional game at Isthmian League’s Bury Town following his release from Ipswich Town.

After earning a move to Charlton Athletic in 2011, Pope had six posterior loan spellsincluding a 24- match stint at York during the2013/14 crusade as City reached the League Two play– offs.

“ I got released from the( Ipswich) academe system when I was 16 and I came back in at 19 after a many time’s at council,” the keeper explained to NUFC TV.

“ From Charlton, I had six or seven loan spells York City, Bury and( at brigades) a lot lower down than that as well,( like) Welling.
“ It’s a trip that I ’m incredibly proud of really, to have that as my routes and my core of my football career being in the grassroots of football and in thenon-league.

“ I ’m really proud to have got to this point with those gests behind me. They ’ve stood me in really good vantage to come into the Premier League and being suitable to enjoy the stage that this is. ”
While Pope’s spell with York was in the Football League, four of his other half-a dozen stints down from Charlton were in thenon-league.

He added “ It’s commodity that situations you and when you get through the leagues and effects ameliorate, you’ve got that really appreciation of having played at position with those gests behind you.
“ commodity that was massive for my career was playing in those games and using the loan system to ameliorate myself as a player.

“ I was going into new dressing apartments with new staff relatively regularly and played in brigades that played different styles of football. It’s commodity that was a great education for me. ”
