Exclusive: Ex-Norwich star doubts move for summer target

Former Norwich City star Jon Newsome doubts a potential deal to sign goalkeeper Angus Gunn will happen this summer, despite understanding why a move is being mooted.

Gunn spent the 2017/18 season on loan at the Canaries from Manchester City, coming third in the Player of the Season vote.

The Canaries finished 14th in the Championship that season but since then, Gunn has moved permanently to Southampton for a fee of £13.5m.

Would Gunn be a good signing?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, he fell out of favour and was loaned to Stoke City for the 2020/21 season.

He has been linked with a potential return to Norwich as a result, per The Pinkun, but Newsome does not think a move would be for the best for the former England U21 international.

He made a total of 15 appearances in the Championship for Stoke and Newsome believes he needs to play regularly if he is to move to a new club; if he joined Norwich, he would be battling for a first-team spot with Tim Krul.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Newsome said: “I can see where the link comes from.

“I can definitely see why the link would be there and I can definitely see why he would be interested and enticed by it but purely from a career point of view, would it be the best place to go? I’m not too sure.”
