Simon Mignolet Liverpool: Reds announce new deal for star stopper

Posted by

Like it or not Liverpool fans, Simon Mignolet is staying at Anfield for a while. The Reds announced on Twitter and their website that the team had reached a new agreement with the 27-year-old Belgian goalkeeper.

Per the Metro, the deal is believed to be a five-year extension paying him £80,000-a-week.

Mignolet has drawn plenty of criticism from fans this season and has conceded six goals in the last three Premier League matches. Liverpool have two losses and a draw during that span and have fallen from seventh to ninth on the table as a result.

However, Mignolet is still tied for the fifth most clean sheets in the league this season with Hugo Lloris, Boaz Myhill and David de Gea.

In an interview with the club, Mignolet expressed his joy in earning the confidence of the club and said he was happy to commit his club future to Liverpool.

“It’s amazing and I have to thank the club for the confidence in me. I’m very pleased that I can be at Anfield and a part of Liverpool for a long future. I’m happy to commit my future to LFC,” Mignolet said.
