Canaries set to sign Angus Gunn on loan deal

6 June 2017

NORWICH City are set to complete the signing of England Under-21s goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal.

Gunn will return to Norfolk from Saturday, July 1 having previously spent a number of years within the Canaries’ Academy setup before moving to Manchester in the summer of 2011.

Speaking to Norwich City TV, the 21-year-old said: "I grew up as Norwich fan and ever since I was a little boy I came to Carrow Road for every home game.

"It’s a great pleasure for me to come back and sign on loan. The main thing for me is to come and get experience, so to mix that in with coming to Norwich is a great feeling."

Son of legendary City goalkeeper Bryan, the Norwich-born stopper will link up with his new teammates once he has returned from representing England at the Under-21s European Championships in Poland.

Reflecting on what Gunn will add to the squad, Sporting Director Stuart Webber added: "He’s an unbelievably talented goalkeeper.

"It’s a name dear to the supporters’ hearts but we’re judging Angus on being Angus. We’re really excited to have him here."
