Simon Mignolet

Belgian top flight side Club Brugge have completed the signing of goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from Premier League giants Liverpool.

Club Brugge announced his transfer via ano official statement on Sunday.

The Belgian international shot stopper has penned a five-year deal at Club Brugge until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Club Brugge will pay a total of £8.2m for the transfer.

The Belgian club will pay an upfront fee of £6.4m plus £1.8m in add-ons.

Simon Mignolet joined Liverpool from fellow English club Sunderland in 2013 for £9m and he went on to make 204 appearances during his six-year stay at the club.

He wanted to leave Liverpool last summer but a proposed loan to Italian Serie A giants Napoli was blocked by the club, while another Reds shot-stopper Loris Karius was sent out on loan to Turkish Super League outfit Besiktas.

Simon Mignolet played just twice for Liverpool during the whole of the last campaign as last summer’s signing Alisson Becker was the first choice.

The Belgian international spent the last 18 months as the second choice goalkeeper at Liverpool.

He lost his place as the Liverpool first choice during the second half of the 2017/18 season.

Ex-West Ham United goalkeeper is expected to take his place at Liverpool.
