The Black Cats shot-stopper is one of a number of Belgium internationals currently setting the Premier League alight.

After establishing himself as number one at the Stadium of Light, Mignolet has become one of the most consistent performers in the English top flight.

His efforts have not gone unnoticed, with transfer speculation building steadily heading into the summer.

The 24-year-old's representative has, however, sought to distance his client from speculation suggesting a switch to Serie A could be on the cards.

Kristof Vandersmissen told tuttomercatoweb.com: "Napoli interested in Mignolet? I have also read this news, but personally I have had no contact with Napoli or any other Italian clubs.

"Simon has a contract for another two years with Sunderland and it's normal that clubs are interested. That is proof that he is doing well.

"However, I repeat, he has a contract with Sunderland."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
