Man City demand clause before selling Gunn to Southampton

  • Angus Gunn featured in every single Championship game for Norwich City in the 17/18 season

Southampton continued their strong start to the summer transfer window by completing a deal for Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn, as confirmed on their official website.

Manchester City are insisting on a buy-back clause in their sale of Angus Gunn to Southampton.

The 22-year-old has a contract with the Citizens that runs until June 2020. Born in Norwich, England, Gunn has enjoyed a close relationship with his local club throughout his youth career, spending the early part with the youth set-up at Norwich before attracting the interest of Manchester City.

The 6ft 5in stopper spent last season back with Norwich in an impressive loan spell, and he even earned a call-up to the England squad back in November as he starred at Carrow Road.


Gunn will leave Manchester City with Ederson, Claudio Bravo, Daniel Grimshaw as the remaining first-team goalkeepers for the blue side of Manchester.

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.

But it seems Southampton boss Mark Hughes has made a permanent move, after Alex McCarthy took over from the out-of-favour Fraser Forster - another former Norwich loanee - during the latter stages of last season.
