Southampton's summer signings reviewed: Angus Gunn.
Southampton’s third summer signing last year was England Under-21 international goalkeeper Angus Gunn. The youngster arrived from Manchester City in a deal believed to be worth £13.5 million following an impressive season on loan at Norwich City in the Championship. Gunn’s transfer to Southampton came as something of a surprise. The club were looking to offload Fraser Forster, but Alex McCarthy had just played a pivotal role in keeping them afloat in the Premier League. Signing another goalkeeper — notably one who was never going to remain a backup player at his next club — seemed peculiar.
