EPL transfer news: Simon Mignolet signs for Liverpool

Mignolet, who played over 100 games for Sunderland since a £2million move from Belgian side Saint-Truiden in June 2010, could well replace the club's long-time number one Spaniard Pepe Reina, who has been linked with a move to Spanish champions Barcelona.

Liverpool: Belgian international goalkeeper Simon Mignolet became English Premier League side Liverpool's fourth signing of the close season on Tuesday when he moved from Sunderland for 9million pounds (US$13.9million).

The 25-year-old, who signed a long-term contract, joins Manchester City's veteran defender Kolo Toure, Sevilla's Luis Alberto and Celta Vigo's Iago Aspas as manager Brendan Rodgers' new recruits since a disappointing season saw them fail to qualify for Europe in finishing seventh and without a trophy.

"I am delighted that we have been able to sign one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League," Rodgers told the club website.
