Sunderland Mignolet rules out move away from Sunderland

Sunderland Mignolet rules out move away from Sunderland

Highly-rated Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has dismissed rumours linking him with a move to a bigger club.

Belgian media have cited Mignolet’s agent who revealed that the goalkeeper wants a new challenge and is looking to leave the club in the near future in order to cement his place in Belgium international team. However Mignolet is determined he can withstand competition of Thibaut Courtois and become Belgium number one without moving to another club.

He said: “I felt I wanted to communicate with the club’s fans following the media reaction to comments made by my representative, which I feel were taken out of context and not a true reflection. Of course, my ambition is to regain the number one spot with my national team, but I feel I can do that with Sunderland. I was playing as Belgium’s number one a year ago and hopefully that can be the case in the future. I am happy at Sunderland - a club I am proud to represent. I will continue focusing on my football, starting with Saturday’s game against Fulham. “
