The 27-year-old handed in a transfer request at Ewood Park after growing frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities behind Paul Robinson.
Norwich City boss Chris Hughton identified the former Tottenham trainee as a deputy to John Ruddy as the Canaries planned to loan out youngsters Declan Rudd and Jed Steer.
Bunn previously worked with goalkeeping coach Dave Watson, assistant manager Colin Calderwood and first team coach Paul Trollope during their time together at Northampton Town.
