Under-fire Liverpool ace set for shock deal

Fresh from his latest mistake, it looks as though Simon Mignolet will still be receiving a new contract from Liverpool, according to the Daily Star.

Jurgen Klopp seems to be willing to keep faith with his Belgian stopper, despite links with moves for German ‘keepers, Timo Horn and Bernd Leno.

Mignolet has been at Liverpool since 2013, when he joined from Sunderland in a £9m deal, but he has had a pretty turbulent time at Anfield.

Several costly errors have made him a liability at times, but it is believed that the club are still expecting him to extend his current deal.

Liverpool’s brief revival under Klopp has hit a slightly rocky patch of late, including a Mignolet mistake against Bordeaux, where the Belgian held the ball for too long and cost his side a goal.

The stopper also made a humiliating mistake as Liverpool drew at home with West Brom over the weekend, and the ex-Black Cat is hardly inspiring confidence at the moment.
