Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is the first Belgian to sign with Liverpool FC.

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- Liverpool has signed Belgium goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from fellow Premier League side Sunderland for a reported fee of 9 million pounds ($13.9 million).

Liverpool says the 25-year-old Mignolet has "penned a long-term contract'' after a brilliant year last season in which he was one of the Premier League's top goalkeepers.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says Tuesday that "Simon will join a club that will give him an opportunity to demonstrate and improve his huge talent.''

The signing clouds the future of Liverpool's current first-choice goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

Mignolet, who has 13 international caps, becomes the first Belgian to sign for Liverpool.
