Southampton Close In On Leeds United Target Angus Gunn

Southampton are closing in on deals for Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn and Borussia Monchengladbach defender Jannik Vestergaard, Press Association Sport understands.

Everybody at Manchester City wishes Angus the very best in his future career. A fee of around £15million is expected to be agreed upon between the two parties, putting Gunn amongst the ten most expensive goalkeepers of all time.

The Norwich-born 22-year-old trained with England before the World Cup.

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.

Gunn, who has interested other clubs, has yet to sign a contract, but is set to leave the Etihad Stadium, where he is behind Ederson and Claudio Bravo in the fight for a first-team place.

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.

He has represented England at youth level, including helping the Under-21 squad triumph at the Toulon Tournament in 2016, and was called up to train with the full squad prior to the friendly with Brazil in November 2017.
