Simon Mignolet: Attracting interest from other clubs

Arsenal have been credited with an interest in Mignolet with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger thought to be in the market for a new keeper this summer.

Mignolet has enjoyed a fine season for the Black Cats despite their struggles at the wrong end of the table and N'Diaye can understand why the Belgian international is attracting interest from other clubs.

"Simon is a quality keeper. When I came here I had not seen him or heard of him, but every time he plays he is fantastic. The quality is there for all to see," said N'Diaye.

"I can understand why he has been linked with other teams because this is normal. It is very normal for that to happen when you play as well as he does.

"He is better than the keeper at Arsenal, Szczesny, he is better than him - no doubt about it.

"Mignolet was brilliant against Southampton and he is like that every week. He is such a good keeper and that is why he is being linked with other clubs."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
