Manchester City sell goalkeeper Angus Gunn to Southampton

Angus Gunn

The highly-rated goalkeeper Angus Gunn is on the verge of moving on a permanent basis away from English champions Manchester City to fellow Premier League club Southampton.

Part of the Denmark squad that reached the last-16 in Russian Federation, the 25-year-old would appear a timely addition to a side yet to bring in a defender since Virgil van Dijk's world-record move to Liverpool.

Today's reported fee is lower, although it is possible that it may be an initial £10million with add-ons increasing City's income in future, but the deal is now close to happening.

Sportsmail revealed Mark Hughes' interest in the 22-year-old last month and City could pocket up to £13.5m should additional clauses be triggered.

Gunn, an ever-present for Norwich in the Championship last season, has been a target for Southampton, who shared the goalkeeping duties between Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy last season.

Southampton are also reportedly closing in on a deal for Borussia Monchengladbach defender Jannik Vestergaard.

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.
