Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn is said to be contemplating switching allegiances from England to Scotland. Gunn, who arrived at St Mary’s last summer from Manchester City in a £13.5million deal, has been forced to wait for his chance in the first team this season but he has been handed the gloves in recent weeks.
The 23-year-old made his fifth Premier League appearance of the campaign in Saturday’s 2-1 home victory over Tottenham Hotspur and his recent performances have been getting a lot of credit.

Senior international honours still evade the shot-stopper, who has represented England from Under-16 to Under-21 level, and there are suggestions he could switch his allegiances to Scotland.
Gunn’s father, the former Norwich goalkeeper and manager, Bryan, was capped six times for the Scots and Peter Grant, who is currently the assistant manager for Scotland, is very close to the family.
A lot will depend on whether the Saints ace is handed a call-up to England’s senior side, with Gareth Southgate set to announce his squad for the upcoming 2020 Euro qualifiers on Wednesday.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
