Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League club.

No details were given on the new deal, which follows Mignolet’s arrival at Anfield in 2013.

The 27-year-old Belgium international, who is expected to join his country’s squad for this year’s European Championship, has made 122 appearances since then – missing just three league games.

The contract extension comes a week after Mignolet was criticized by fans and the media for his performance in a 3-3 home draw against league leader Arsenal.

”I know signing a new contract comes with new responsibility,” Mignolet told the club’s website. ”I’m getting older as well and coming into the years where people would say those are the years a `keeper is at his best.”
