Liverpool sign Mignolet

Liverpool have completed the signing of goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from Sunderland on a long-term contract.

The Belgium international, 25, moves to Anfield after completing a medical at the club’s Melwood training ground on Tuesday.

Mignolet becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer after arrivals of Kolo Toure from Manchester City, Luis Alberto from Sevilla and Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.

Manager Brendan Rodgers welcomed the signing on the club’s official website, saying: "I am delighted that we have been able to sign one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League.

- Randall: Mignolet exit poses questions for Sunderland

"Simon will join a club that will give him an opportunity to demonstrate and improve his huge talent." 

Mignolet used his official Twitter account to talk of his pride at becoming the first Belgian on Liverpool's books.

 

 

Mignolet’s arrival has increased uncertainty over the long-term future of Pepe Reina, who has been repeatedly linked with a return to his first club Barcelona.

A move to the Nou Camp for Reina has been made less likely by Victor Valdes’ insistence that he will see out his Barca contract until it expires in 2014, rather than leave this summer.

Reina, for his part, has declared he wants to stay at Anfield to fight for his place – and Mignolet is ready for the battle.

“Competition can only be a good thing,” he said in an interview with Liverpool's official website.

“I’ve been in big competitions wherever I've been - in Belgium with the national team and in Sunderland with Craig Gordon and Keiren Westwood, who are international goalies.

“Now it’s the same again with Pepe and with Brad Jones. It’s only a good thing – to be competitive and to train as hard as you can, it can only bring the best out of you.

“Pepe is an experienced goalkeeper who has proven a lot over the years.

“I’m looking forward to working with him, the same as I am with Brad and the goalie coach.”

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio paid tribute to Mignolet upon his departure telling the club's official website: "Simon is a fantastic footballer, a fantastic professional and a fantastic lad and I would like to personally thank him for his contribution to the team last season.

"He was crucial to what we achieved and he goes with the very best wishes of everyone at the club."

Mignolet has 13 caps for Belgium and made 90 appearances during his time at the Stadium of Light after arriving from his hometown club Sint-Truiden in 2010.
