Angus Gunn is reportedly on the verge of completing a move back to Norwich City.
The Southampton goalkeeper spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Stoke City, making 15 appearances for Michael O’Neill’s side.
When Gunn joined in October, it was due to be a long-term loan deal running until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.
As a result, Gunn’s time at the bet365 Stadium was brought to an end, leaving him to return to his parent club, with Bursik set to challenge Adam Davies for the number one spot at Stoke.
Gunn has been behind Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy in the Southampton pecking order, so is set to move on during this summer’s transfer window.
The Athletic is now reporting that Norwich and the Saints have agreed a deal for the 25-year-old stopper.
Gunn is apparently yet to “sign off” on personal terms but it sounds like the newly-promoted Canaries are closing in on their man.
Norwich, who secured an immediate return to the Premier League by winning the Championship title, are said to be paying an initial fee of £5million, potentially rising to £7million with add-ons.

Gunn is the son of Norwich goalkeeping legend Bryan and started out at the club as a youngster.
He left to sign for Manchester City in 2011 but returned to Norwich on loan during the 2017-18 season, where he got his first taste of senior football.
He went on to join Southampton from Man City for around £10million in the summer of 2018.
