After being unceremoniously dumped by Ralph Hasenhuttl on the South Coast – Gunn didn’t play a league game for the club again following that 9-0 thumping by Leicester City in October 2019 – the talented shot-stopper has returned to Carrow Road with a point to prove.
And the son of Norwich legend Bryan has wasted little time in staking his claim for the number one jersey with just a few weeks to go before the new season kicks off.
“It probably feels like coming home,” Farke said of a man now in his third spell at Norwich.
“He has been outstanding so far. His fitness level is very good. Maybe he had two or three seasons where it was difficult, in terms of his confidence and not playing games, to stay in his rhythm.
“It is quite important for him he knows this set up, he knows he is valued and he has shown his quality already.”
Where will Leeds turn now after missing out on Gunn?
Leeds are long-time admirers of the one-time Championship glovesman, as reported by The Mirror.
But for Gunn, the chance to rejoin the club where he played arguably the best football of his career was too good to miss.
Norwich are understood to have paid £5 million for the one-time Manchester City youngster.
Meanwhile, Leeds’ pursuit of a goalkeeper goes on. The Yorkshire Evening Post believes Freddie Woodman of Newcastle United, Levante’s Dani Cardenas and Valerenga youngster Kristoffer Klaesson are all under consideration.
But, for a variety of reasons, all three look set to slip through Marcelo Bielsa’s fingers.
