Liverpool FC are unlikely to let Simon Mignolet leave Anfield this summer on a loan or a permanent deal, according to reports in the British media.

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Reds have no plans to let Mignolet leave the Merseyside outfit this summer despite his lack of playing time last season.

The Belgium international found his playing time to be severely restricted last season following the arrival of Alisson Becker to Anfield from AS Roma last summer.

The 31-year-old shot-stopper made just two appearances in the cup competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side as the Reds favoured Alisson in front of goal for most of the campaign.

Mignolet’s lack of playing time last season has inevitably prompted suggestions that he could be on his way out of the Merseyside outfit this summer.

However, the same story now says that the Reds have no intention of selling him this summer, and a loan deal is “highly unlikely”.

Mignolet has flown out to the United States as the only senior goalkeeper in Liverpool FC’s 28-man squad for their pre-season tour.

Liverpool FC are aiming to go one step further in the Premier League next season after they finished in second place in the table and just a point behind champions Manchester City last term.
