Liverpool will not consider Mignolet sale this week

Liverpool will not consider selling Simon Mignolet this week.

The Guardian says the Reds will not allow Mignolet to leave Anfield this week despite the Belgium international's desire for regular first-team football.

The 30-year-old reiterated at the weekend that he wanted to move and insisted Loris Karius's loan to Besiktas – a transfer he described as “bizarre" – had not altered his position at Liverpool.

However, the club's position remains that Mignolet will be deputy to the £65m summer signing Alisson for the foreseeable future and he will not be leaving before Fifa's transfer deadline on Friday.

Liverpool rejected Besiktas's loan offer for Mignolet before the Turkish club switched their attention to Karius, who signed a two-year loan deal on Saturday that will become a permanent transfer after the second season providing he starts regularly.
