Newcastle fans are bemused by links to Mignolet

Simon Mignolet has appeared as a shock transfer target for Newcastle, and fans are having none of it.

According to the Daily Star, Newcastle are one of six clubs interested in taking Mignolet from Liverpool this summer, and the Chronicle reports the ex-Sunderland stopper could be an alternative to Martin Dubravka if he returns to Sparta Prague.

Celtic, Napoli, Stoke City, Southampton and Burnley are the other clubs tipped to have an interest in Mignolet, who is certain to leave Liverpool this summer after being forced out of the side by Loris Karius.

Newcastle fans are of course delighted with the form of Martin Dubravka, but despite the Slovakian expressing his desire to stay longer than six months, it’s still anybody’s guess whether the club will secure a permanent deal for Dubravka.

If Dubravka were to return to his parent club, Rafa Benitez would surely target a goalkeeper this summer, but we’re not sure fans would take too kindly to a move for Mignolet, who made over 100 appearances for Sunderland.
