Angus Gunn has passed a Norwich City medical as he finalises a move from Southampton, according to claims being made today by the Football Insider website.
Daniel Farke’s Norwich City side have fended off late competition from Leeds United in their attempts to re-sign their former academy product.
A recruitment sourceat the club has told Football Insider that Gunn, 25, completed a Norwich medical today (Tuesday) and is in the process of putting pen to paper on a three-year contract with an option for a fourth year.
Norwich are believed to be paying Southampton a fee in the region of around £5million for the former England Under-21 international keeper.
Leeds had also made a late push for the 6 ft 4in giant as they look to replace Kiko Casilla this summer, however the former Manchester City man has seemingly opted to go to a club where he has a realistic chance of being a regular starter.
His career had somewhat ground to a halt at the south coast club, where by last season he had slipped behind both Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster in the pecking order for the number one jersey.
He was then loaned out to Championship outfit Stoke City last October for the majorityof the season. However he then missed two months with an ankle injury but ultimately made 15 Championship appearances for the Potters.
Norwich, where Gunn spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan, moved to be reunited with the son of club legend Bryan.
He will compete for the number one shirt with longstanding number one Tim Krul. The 33-year-old Dutchman has been the first choice during his three years at Norwich and conceded just 23 goals in 36 league starts last season.
