Simon Mignolet says that he instantly chose to sign for Liverpool when he heard of the Merseyside club's interest.

New Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has revealed that he quickly made his mind up regarding a switch to Anfield from Sunderland after hearing of the Merseyside club's interest.

The Belgian, who is believed to have signed a five-year deal, completed his move to Liverpool on Tuesday for a reported £9m fee.

"My agents were working on things and I was still a Sunderland player so they did not really tell me a lot," the Shields Gazette quotes Mignolet as saying.

"But once I heard they were interested in signing me, I knew I would go. I can't wait to get going now.

"It is a challenge obviously, but that is what you want. I want to play in big games, in front of a big crowd, with pressure."

Mignolet's arrival has put doubt on Pepe Reina's position at Liverpool, despite the Spaniard insisting that he is happy at the club.
