Former Norwich City loan keeper Angus Gunn is reportedly top of Leeds United’s wish list this summer.
The Yorkshire Evening Post report on Monday Gunn has emerged as a potential number one at Elland Road, with Manchester City set to loan the England Under-21 international out again next season.
Gunn was a big hit at Carrow Road last season, keeping 15 clean sheets for the Canaries and finishing in the top three of the player-of-the year voting.
Premier League Watford and recently relegated Stoke City have both been linked with a fresh loan move for Gunn, but with Felix Wiedwald reportedly out-of-favour under Whites’ boss Paul Heckingbottom, Leeds see Gunn as a potential new arrival to battle it out with Bailey Peacock-Farrell for the number one jersey in Yorkshire.
Gunn used his twitter account on Sunday to thank the staff, players and Norwich fans for a memorable year, and Remi Matthews is expected to get a first chance to stake his claim to replace the highly-rated City stopper after impressing himself on loan at Plymouth.
