Report: Mignolet to remain at Liverpool next season
One of the few remaining respectable newspapers in the UK, the Times, has reported this afternoon that Liverpool will retain the services of Simon Mignolet for the 2019-20 season.
Reportedly, Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with the attitude of Mignolet over the past 12 months, when he has basically watched Alisson Becker become the best keeper in the world.
Mignolet was expected to leave during the 2019 summer window, with a replacement goalkeeper being a priority for the new season, with the popular Belgian expected to fetch around £10-15 million.
The 31-year old played just twice for the Reds last season, in both of the FA and Carabao Cup games that saw us exit the competitions at the first round stage.
But Klopp is fond of Mignolet and, according to the paper, is keen to keep him around the squad, as a backup keeper and because he has a positive attitude as one of the more experienced players.
If nothing else, it'll be a little bit less turmoil with a new keeper not being required and Mignolet already being settled at the club. It'll also give one of the young lads another 12 months to come into the squad.
