Leeds United and Celtic will battle Premier League clubs in attempts to land Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Nick Pope this summer, according to TEAMtalk

The 24-year old was one of few players to keep their stock intact at the Valley this season as the Addicks meekly succumbed to relegation into League One.

Though the former Bury Town youngster was powerless to stave off the drop, there’s little he could have done under Jose Riga as the team suffered on a much wider scale.

Leeds particularly could be on the lookout for a new ‘keeper after seeing Italian stopper Marco Silvestri much criticised this term.

Doubts also remain over the highly rated Bailey Peacock-Farrell amid his ongoing contract dispute.

It is also claimed the likes of Celtic, Nottingham Forest, Crystal Palace and Burnley are interested in Pope, who finally established himself as the Number 1 in South London after a number of loan spells.

With the situation at Charlton being on the verge of a full blow crisis, the club are said to be bracing themselves for a major summer of interest.

Do Leeds need to improve in the goalkeeping department?
