Norwich City are set to complete the signing of Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn later this week, according to the Pink’Un. He’ll pen a season-long loan at Carrow Road and will become Daniel Farke’s first signing as Canaries boss.
The name Gunn will obviously ring a few bells for Norwich City supporters. They will be signing 21-year-old Gunn, son of Norwich City legend, ex-goalkeeper and manager Bryan. He is currently away with the England Under-21 side preparing for the European Championships in the next few weeks.
Gunn was born in Norwich and has previously been on the books at the club, prior to making the move to Man City back in 2011. He hasn’t made a single first-team appearance for City in that time frame, despite the ongoing debate about the goalkeeper situation at the Etihad Stadium. He has however been a regular substitute in Premier League and Champions League fixtures.
With Pep Guardiola set to complete the big money signing of Ederson from Benfica to become first-choice at the club, it further pushes Gunn down the pecking order. Claudio Bravo is still on the scene, plus Joe Hart has returned following a loan spell at Torino.
There are still other goalkeepers on the books at Norwich despite Ruddy moving on. Northern Ireland international Michael McGovern will be aiming to provide competition, whilst the club activated an option to extend Declan Rudd’s stay at the club too. Veteran Paul Jones and youngster Remi Matthews are other options too, but Gunn is likely to have first crack at the number one jersey under Falke.
