Liverpool goalkeeper is set to seal a move to Club Brugge.

According to a report in The Mirror, Simon Mignolet has flown to Brugge to complete a £6.4m move to the Belgian club.

At 31-years of age, Mignolet is still young in goalkeeping terms. Many keepers are considered to be in their prime during these years.

He made just two appearances last season and suggested that he would like to leave to find regular first-team football.

He has played 204 games for Liverpool. He joined them back in 2013 for 9 million pounds from Sunderland.

He has also played 21 times for Belgium.

Klopp has told his second choice keeper he would be free to move for the right price. There was an early window link with Napoli.

It is believed Brugge have made an offer of 6.4 million. potentially rising to 8.2 million.

It is understood, he left for Belgium immediately after the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.

The Belgian club has Champions’ League qualifier against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday. They would like to have Mignolet registered in time to feature.

Liverpool currently has academy prospects as back up. Caiomhin Kelleher and Vitreszlav Jaros. Plus there is the loan signing Andy Lonergan 35-year-old veteran as cover.

Jurgen Klopp may make a late swoop in the market to find a replacement.

Whoever comes in will know they are always going to be back up to Allison Becker.

There were early transfer window rumours of Liverpool being interested in Cardiff keeper Neil Etheridge.

West Ham keeper Adrian, who was released at the end of the season, could be an ideal solution with no current club.
