Belgian keeper moves to Anfield.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has officially completed a move to Liverpool for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old joins the Reds having made 101 appearances in three years on Wearside.

He joined Sunderland from home-town club Sint-Truiden in June 2010 and quickly established himself between the sticks.

Head coach Paolo Di Canio told “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.

“I would like to assure our fans that there is a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes.

“Our aim is to build a competitive squad for the new season and this deal will give us further ability to strengthen the side.”
