Leeds United look set to miss out on the signing of goalkeeper Angus Gunn, with the Southampton man on the verge of joining Norwich City.
The Lowdown: Leeds linked with late hijack
Gunn has largely been tipped to join Norwich, however, and it looks as though that will be the case, ahead of their return to the Premier League next season.
The Latest: Norwich set to sign Gunn
According to Football Insider, the Englishman will have a medical with the Canaries at some point on Monday, sealing a move to the club where his father, Bryan, is considered a legend.
Leeds’ late interest is mentioned in the report, but Gunn appears to have made up his mind over his next destination.
The Verdict: No huge issue for Whites
While it is a blow to miss out on Gunn as it would have been nice to have sorted Casilla’s replacement in a swift fashion, missing out him isn’t the most critical transfer miss of all time.
Illan Meslier is the undisputed first-choice ‘keeper at the club and Marcelo Bielsa still has plenty of time to find a suitable back-up to the Frenchman this summer, Gunn would have been a very good option, but there should be other targets who’d be keen to join a club like Leeds United.
Such is Meslier’s importance to the team, the hope is that whoever his deputy is next season ends up featuring as little as possible.
