Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is staying calm over fresh transfer interest.

Sunderland’s Belgian stopper is attracting interest from the likes of both Arsenal and Manchester United after a superb season.

Mignolet said: “I try to say to people who ask me about being linked with other clubs that it goes in one ear and out of the other.

“That is what you are going to get as a footballer. Sometimes you are a hero and sometimes you are in the eye of a storm — things change quickly.

“The only thing I can do is focus on my own game. All those clubs I am linked with, if I make a mistake on Saturday, I will be un- linked straight away.

“It will be the exact opposite and that’s why I don’t really get fussed about it.”
