Simon Mignolet looking to use international duty to avoid transfer talk.

Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is hoping to use the International break with the Belgian side as a way of avoiding the speculation surrounding his future at the north east club.

The 25-year old has been an ever-present in goal for the Black Cats this season, and has seen him attract the attention of Arsenal and Manchester United.

But the towering stopper is refusing to discuss his future, and would prefer to focus on his International commitments.

“I will be going away with Belgium first of all and I will focus on that,” Mignolet told Chronicle Live.

“Afterwards, I am abroad, so I am not going to really read the English newspapers.

“I will not get carried away by the speculation. I will keep my feet on the ground. When you are playing well, there will be stories written about you.”

Despite Sunderland losing 17 games this season, Mignolet was able to keep a superb 11 clean sheets but was denied a 12th on Sunday after last-minute thunderbolt from Tottenham’s Gareth Bale.

He still has two years left remaining on his current contract with the club, so any bid for the keeper would have to been hefty enough to tempt the Stadium of Light hierarchy.
