Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn close in deal with Southampton


Southampton are close to signing England Under-21 goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Manchester City.

Gunn, who has interested other clubs, has yet to sign a contract, but is set to leave the Etihad Stadium, where he is behind Ederson and Claudio Bravo in the fight for a first-team place.
He spent last season on loan at Norwich, the former club of his father, retired Scotland goalkeeper Bryan Gunn.
The Norwich-born 22-year-old trained with England before the World Cup.
Gunn, an ever-present for Norwich in the Championship last season, has been a target for Southampton, who shared the goalkeeping duties between Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy last season.


It is also thought that the Saints have lined up a deal for Denmark centre-half Jannik Vestergaard.
McCarthy finished the season as first-choice goalkeeper, with Forster's last game the 5-2 Premier League defeat by Tottenham at Wembley on Boxing Day.
So far this summer, Southampton manager Mark Hughes has signed Scotland midfielder Stuart Armstrong from Celtic for £7m and Norway's Mohamed Elyounoussi from Swiss club Basel for around £16m, while Dusan Tadic has joined Ajax for an initial £10m.
