Goalkeeper, Mark Bunn has been released by newly promoted Norwich City which has caused speculation of the 30 year old to move to his former team, Northampton Town. Further speculation has suggested that he could move to another of his former teams, Sheffield United but with the squad currently without a manager, an immediate move is unlikely.
Mark Bunn is expected to take a wage cut to gain the regular, first team football he craves with a lower league club. League 2 could well be a step too far for a goalkeeper who not long ago was starring in a Blackburn side who triumphed over the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, however, if Northampton were to persuade Bunn that their stay in League 2 is soon to come to an end, a deal could well be on the cards.
Bunn has had a stuttering career since his departure from Northampton having attracted large interest after a man of the match performance in a cup upset against Bolton Wanderers in 2008. He only ended up making 14 appearances for Rovers even having shone in a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Boxing Day in 2011 and the 3-2 win at Old Trafford five days later. He spent loan spells at Leicester and most notably Sheffield United, where he made 34 appearances in his season there, before he moved to Norwich as a number two to John Ruddy. His best spell at the club was during the 2012-13 season when he managed 22 Premier League appearances and made a match winning penalty save in the final minute of a cup tie against Tottenham.
