Norwich City has signed Angus Gunn from Southampton on a four-year deal. Gunn spent most of his youth career with the canaries before joining Manchester City back in 2017. He returned to the club on loan in 2016/17. Under the care of Daniel Farke, Gunn played all 46 games in the Championship.
“It was a few years ago since I was here on loan, and it was an unbelievable feeling then,” Angus Gunn said after joining Norwich City. “Getting the deal done feels the same, if not better, because it’s more of a permanent thing. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s the club that I grew up supporting and the strides that it has made over the last few years show it’s a club still on the up.”
“On the pitch, they’ve been doing great things. Off the pitch, coming back and seeing the training ground and what it is today is another thing they’ve progressed with,” he added. “Hopefully, this season we can get our place in the Premier League and make sure that we have a good start and stay there.”
Gunn admitted that he was happy with the move after talking to goalkeeping coach Ed Wotten as well as head coach Daniel Farke. This will be Norwich City’s second signing in as many days after signing Milot Rashica from Werder Bremen. He has been brought in to replace Buendia who joined Aston Villa for £40m.
“We got the feeling that Angus will be the perfect fit for our goalkeeping group.” Norwich head coach Farke said. “We’ve got two very experienced goalkeepers in Tim Krul and Michael McGovern and a young goalkeeper in Daniel Barden. Angus fits perfectly into this goalkeeping team.”
