Norwich are set to beat off late competition from Leeds to complete the £5million signing of Angus Gunn from Southampton next week.

Gunn's dad Bryan, a former Scotland international, spent 12 years as a player at Carrow Road followed by a brief stint as manager.

Son Angus,25, played for the Canaries too previously as an ever-present during a season on loan from Manchester City in 2017-18.

Now he is set to return permanently after falling out of favour at Saints since their 9-0 defeat by Leicester in October 2019.

He only made three more appearances for Southampton before a loan spell at Stoke last term.

The promoted Canaries have to cash to spend following the record sale of Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa.

Norwich are also trying to bring in Peterborough's teenage attacking midfielder Flynn Clarke for their development squad.

Buendia, meanwhile, wants to fire Aston Villa into Europe after joining in a club record £33million deal.

Villa have broken their transfer record to snap up Buendia from promoted Norwich, where he had 15 goals and 16 assists last term.

The Argentine attacking midfielder,24, opted for Villa despite interest from long-term suitors Arsenal.

He wants to help Dean Smith's side climb the table from 11th to qualify for Europe.

Buendia said: “It is a really good step for me.

“I have really good feelings about the future.

“The project and vision of the club is amazing.

“We are looking to play in the next year in Europe.”

Buendia has displaced Ollie Watkins as Villa's record buy in a deal which could rise to nearly £40m with add-ons.

He will join keeper and Argentine compatriot Emiliano Martinez at Villa Park.

Buendia added: “He already told me a lot about the club and the city.

“A lot of very good things about everything.

“The last few weeks we have been speaking together.

“He was speaking to try to convince me to go.

“To have someone like there will be very good for my adaptation but it will be my fourth year in England so I think it will be easy for me.”
