Transfer Rumour: Leeds Looking To Derail Norwich Gunn Move

Leeds United are attemptin to derail Norwich City’s deal for Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn, according to reports published today by Football Insider.

Norwich have been working on the resigning of their academy product and former loanee and have agreed a £5million-plus fee with the Saints.

However, a recruitment source has told Football Insider Leeds are also keen on Gunn, 25, and have registered their interest in a late ambush.

United are looking to offload number two Kiko Casilla this summer after he slipped behind Illan Meslier in the pecking order.  And with Gunn having been targeted by Leeds before he is regarded as the ideal competition and cover for first choice stopper Meslier.

The Whites were reportedly originally keen on signing the young English shot-stopper before his move from Manchester City to Southampton in 2018.

Gunn has fallen out of favour at Southampton and is now behind Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster in the pecking order.

Norwich, where Gunn spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan, have had a £5million-plus bid accepted by the Saints and are negotiating other terms of the deal.

However, Leeds have made a late move to try and beat the newly-promoted side to his capture.

The keeper spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Championship side Stoke City, making 15 appearances.  Unfortunately while there he suffered an ankle injury in November which kept him out of 15 games for the Potters.  Gunn then suffered a foot injury in April which ultimately ended his season.

He has a total of 22 Premier League appearances under his belt, while he was an unused substitute for England against Brazil in 2017.
