The Belgium international arrives at Anfield for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in excess of £9million, and came through his medical at their Melwood training ground earlier on Tuesday.

Brendan Rodgers has been busy in the transfer market this summer with Mignolet joining Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas in making the move to Merseyside.

"I am delighted that we have been able to sign one of the top goalkeepers in the Barclays Premier League," Rodgers told his club's official website.

"Simon will join a club that will give him an opportunity to demonstrate and improve his huge talent."

The 25-year-old impressed after arrving in the Premier League from Sint-Truiden in 2010, establishing himself as one of the most promising keepers in Europe.

Mignolet will now have to battle with Pepe Reina for the starting spot at Liverpool, while Brad Jones is also on the books at Anfield, and it is a challenge he is relishing.
