ANGUS Gunn is considering whether to switch allegiances from England to Scotland, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Saints goalkeeper has played for England at every level from the Under-16s to the Under-21s but is yet to receive a call-up to the senior side.

Because of this, the report suggests that Gunn would be willing to pledge his international future to Scotland.

The international side’s manager, Alex McLeish, is said to be close to the Gunn family and is therefore optimistic about convincing the 23-year-old whose father Bryan played for Scotland six times.

Having joined Saints from Manchester City last summer for £13.5m, the goalkeeper has spent most of this season as Alex McCarthy’s back-up.

However, Ralph Hasenhuttl decided to go with Gunn for the Arsenal game last month and has stuck with him ever since.

And with him becoming Saints’ number one and Scotland trying to prise him away from England, Gareth Southgate could today name him in his squad.

The Three Lions will begin their Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic on Friday, 22 March, before playing Montenegro the following Monday.

Saints are said to expecting a call-up for Gunn due to the form he has shown since coming into the side.

He is the only goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet since Hasenhuttl took charge of the St Mary's side at the beginning of December.

They came against Chelsea at the beginning of January and then in the 2-0 win over Fulham last month.
