Norwich City: Angus Gunn on ‘professional’ Danny Batth

It was an uncharacteristically busy and frenetic end to the transfer season for City, who signed Batth and South Korean striker Hwang Ui-jo in the final moments of the window.


Batth completed a late Deadline Day move to Norwich after Andrew Omobamidele departed to join Premier League side Nottingham Forest in a deal that could be worth up to £20m to the Canaries. 

With the clock ticking, City moved quickly to secure the secures of Batth on a free transfer from Sunderland having monitored his situation throughout the summer. 

Gunn is perfectly placed to offer insight on the defender, having played with Batth during his loan spell at Stoke back in the 2020/21 campaign. 

Batth will join up with his new teammates towards the end of the international break and will encounter a familiar face in Gunn. 

“I played with Danny at Stoke so I know him quite well,” Gunn told the Pink Un. “He’s a really great lad to add to our group. He is a really good pro. Ultra professional.

“He’s got a lot of experience in this league. He’s going to come in and add to our defensive options. He is a really good, solid defender who will add plenty to our group.” 

The additions of Hwang and Batth came in a hectic week for City that began with a 4-0 victory over Huddersfield that saw them lose Josh Sargent until the new year with a serious ankle ligament injury. 

That forced them back into the market – where they eventually got their top target in Hwang. Omobamidele’s move triggered one final dart into the window late on to bring Batth to the club.

On the eve of City’s clash against Rotherham, the drama that was unfolding was news to Gunn – who woke up on Saturday morning to discover news of two new teammates. 

“It was interesting,” Gunn said. “Congratulations to Andy, who got a really good move to Nottingham Forest. I didn’t realise we had actually signed players until I woke up this morning because I fell asleep. 

“I’ve heard really good reports about the lad from Forest. I’m looking forward to meeting those guys and welcoming them into our group. 

“Hopefully, they can push us further as a squad.”
