Southampton completed a deal to sign goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Manchester City on Tuesday.
Gunn has signed a five-year deal with Southampton for a fee thought to be in the region of £10m.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan to Norwich, his hometown team, in the Championship, where he made 51 appearances in all competitions.
His form earned him a call-up to train with the England squad ahead of the World Cup, but why is he a good signing for Southampton?
Here are four reasons why Gunn is a good signing for Southampton…
He commands his area
A common problem among young goalkeepers is that they are all about shot-stopping.
Too many goalkeepers stay rooted to their line and just try and save shots.
Commanding the area, claiming crosses and through balls, is equally as important.
Gunn proved last season for Norwich that commanding his area was one of his strongest assets.
Gareth Southgate rates him highly
Gareth Southgate may well be the most popular man in England at the moment, and for good reason.
The England boss is set to manage the country in their first semi-final of my lifetime, and he is a big fan of Southampton’s new signing.
He managed Gunn at under-21 level and has called Gunn up to the senior squad twice in the past year, ahead of a number of experienced Premier League goalkeepers.
A reasonable price
The prices for promising homegrown talent has skyrocketed in recent years, with Aston Villa wanting £40m for Jack Grealish, for example.
For Southampton to sign a young goalkeeper with heaps of international experience, at youth and senior level, for £10m is a bargain.
He can only improve
Gunn is set to work alongside Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster at Southampton, two experienced English goalkeepers.
This can only be good for Gunn, who can learn from them and improve his game further with their advice.
He could also help Alex McCarthy to up his game as the two vie for the number one spot.
