Mark Bunn: Has impressed for Norwich since stepping into Chris Hughton's sta

The Canaries shot-stopper has been in inspired form over recent weeks, playing a leading role in Norwich's 10-match unbeaten run.

He has taken full advantage of an unfortunate injury to John Ruddy, with a starting berth in the Premier League falling into his lap.

Giovanni Trapattoni is keen to bolster his keeping options after seeing the vastly-experienced Shay Given slip into international retirement.

Bunn is among those under consideration, with the 28-year-old qualifying to represent Ireland through his father and grandmother.
