Medical passed: Gunn finalises Norwich City move from Southampton in blow to Leeds - Sources

Angus Gunn has passed a Norwich City medical as he finalises a move from Southampton, Football Insider can reveal.

Daniel Farke’s side have fended off late competition from Leeds United to re-sign their former academy product.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Gunn, 25, completed a Norwich medical today (Tuesday) and is putting pen to paper on a three-year contract with an option for a fourth year.

Norwich are expected to pay the Saints around £5million for the former England Under-21 international.

Leeds had also made a late push for the 6 ft 4in giant as they look to replace Kiko Casilla this summer.

But the former Man City man wants to be at a club where he has a realistic chance of being a regular starter.

His career had stalled on the south coast, where he had slipped behind Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster in the pecking order.

He was then loaned out to Championship outfit Stoke City last October for most of the season.

He missed two months with an ankle injury but 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.
