Released by Ipswich Town at the age of 16, Nick dropped into non-league football with neighbouring Bury Town before being handed his professional chance once more with Charlton Athletic.

Joining the Addicks in May 2011, he made his debut in the Championship against Bristol City in May 2013. Extended loans then came at League Two sides York City and Bury before establishing himself with his parent club during the 2015/16 season.

His form caught the eye of Burnley manager Sean Dyche and he moved to Turf Moor ahead of the 2016/17 season.

While games were in short supply in his first campaign with the Clarets, he was first-choice keeper the following season, making 35 Premier League appearances. His impressive form earned an England call and he was a member of the Three Lions’ World Cup finals squad in 2018, making his debut against Costa Rica that June.

Sadly, a dislocated shoulder ruled him out for most of the following season, but he again established himself in the Burnley first team for the 2019/20 campaign, winning his second England cap in the process, against Kosovo that November.
