Bristol City line up move for ex-Norwich man Mark Bunn

HITC Sport understands Bristol City are eyeing former Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that former Norwich City goalkeeper Mark Bunn could be set for a move to Championship new boys Bristol City.

Bunn is currently a free agent after leaving Norwich upon the expiration of his contract at Carrow Road.

The 30-year-old never made a first-team appearance for Norwich last season due to the form of No.1 'keeper John Ruddy and the Canaries are well-stocked with goalkeepers. 

Bunn endured an indifferent time at Norwich making just 29 appearances during his three seasons at the club after joining from Blackburn in the summer of 2012.

Bunn made his name at Northampton before joining Blackburn in a £1 million deal in 2008, but found it difficult to dislodge Paul Robinson as first-choice 'keeper at Ewood Park.

The talented shot-stopper made only 15 appearances during his time at Blackburn, but enjoyed impressive performances in the memorable win over Manchester United at Old Trafford in the 2011-12 season.

A number of clubs have shown an interest in Bunn with the 'keeper available on a free transfer, but Bristol City are hoping to lure the player to Ashton Gate.

City boss Steve Cotterill is keen to add some experience to his side and he sees Bunn as someone who will provide competition for current No.1 keeper Frank Fielding.
