There’s speculation in the Football Transfer Tavern that Arsenal are set to lose out on Sunderland keeper Simon Mignolet who is expected to remain at the Stadium of Light for the rest of his two-year contract.
The reports comes subject of his agent Guy Vandersmissen who admits that any decision about his future lies with the Belgian international’s current club as despite being interested in a possible move he will still respect his current contract.
Vandersmissen told Sky Sports: “At this moment there are some clubs who are interested but Simon still has a two-year contract so we depend on the position that Sunderland is taking in relation to an eventual transfer.
“There is a contract so we have to respect the contract. But I don’t think at this moment we would be prepared to sign a new contract. When there is a new contract the team can block a player.
“There are another two years on his contract, if they want us to stick to that, we will stick to that and perhaps leave after two years if there is an interest in Simon.”
However his representative still left the door open for a possible move, saying:“If they want to make a proposal to Simon, they should come up with a decent proposal and we will then have a look at it.”
Will the keeper really reject any interest to stay with Sunderland? Rate this rumour below.
