Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn has returned to Norwich City, signing a four-year contract with the Canaries for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Son of Norwich City legend Bryan, Gunn played in the Norwich youth teams before moving to Manchester City.

He played in the Norwich first team on loan from City in 2017-18, before Southampton signed him on a permanent deal in July 2018 for £13.5m.

Gunn failed to establish himself as Saints’ number one goalkeeper, only making 30 appearances for the club in all competitions. His last Premier League appearance for Southampton was in their 9-0 home loss to Leicester City in October 2019.

The 25-year-old stopper spent last season on loan at Championship side Stoke City last season, where he made 15 appearances for the Potters.

Now, he will be re-joining the newly-promoted Norwich City, who won the Championship last season to return to the Premier League after just one season in English football’s second tier.

“He’s at a perfect age and full of potential” said Norwich boss Daniel Farke. “He’s proved he can play at the top level and was fantastic for us three seasons ago.

“He played almost each and every second for us and of course he has a huge identification and connection with the football club through his father.”
