Mignolet set to move on

Arsenal have been alerted to news that Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is set to turn down an offer of a new deal at the Stadium of Light.

The Belgian internationals agent Nico Vaesen has invited potential suitors to contact the club in the hope a deal can be done, as his client is unlikely to push for a move.

Speaking to the Sunderland Echo, Vaesen said that it is “very unlikely that he will sign a new contract”.

The 25 year old shot-stopper is keen to improve his international credentials ahead of next summer’s World Cup, with Atletico Madrid loanee Thibaut Courtois vying for the Belgium number one shirt.

Liverpool are also said to be interested in Mignolet, who kept eleven Premier League clean sheets last season.

Meanwhile, the Express reports that Matej Vydra is keen to sign for a Premier League club, after his representative admitted that he will not remain with Watford next season.

The Czech Republic international recently enjoyed a successful season long loan at Vicarage Road where he was named Championship Player of the Year after scoring 22 league goals.

Arsenal and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are both said to have been monitoring the 21 year old, whose parent club is Serie A side Udinese.
