Liverpool sign Sunderland keeper Simon Mignolet

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet in a £9m deal.

The 25-year-old signed a long-term contract after a medical on Tuesday.

He will become Liverpool’s fourth summer signing after Manchester City’s Kolo Toure, Sevilla’s Luis Alberto and Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas.

The Belgium international has played 101 games for Sunderland since his £2m move from Sint-Truiden in June 2010.

He kept 11 clean sheets in 40 matches last season for the Black Cats.

Liverpool’s current first-choice keeper Pepe Reina, 30, has been linked with a return to Spanish champions Barcelona, where he started his career.
