Fulham have been longer-term admirers of Pope and will be looking to make a transfer swoop this summer.
Craven Cottage boss Marco Silva is eager to tie Pope down early in the summer transfer window and it reportedly keen to hand the 30-year-old a three-year deal.
The move could be intriguing to Pope as Fulham are not afraid to splash the cash on their player’s salaries, while Burnley will be forced to cut his pay cheque if they are relegated.

‘You can walk past the lads in the street and speak to them in ten, 15 years because you still have that bond. It’s the same again here.
‘There have been injuries, the pressure of games, so to keep delivering is credit to them.
‘I just see a group of mates who don’t really care who they’re playing against. Every game since we’ve been here has been called ‘a must’, where you’ve got to get something out of it.
