Sunderland will show Simon Mignolet around their training facilities this weekend as they try to persuade the highly-rated goalkeeper to move to Wearside.

Belgium Under-21 international Mignolet is also coveted by PSV Eindhoven, although neither club has agreed a fee with his current employers, St Truidense. Mignolet confirmed on Friday he is heading to the north east as he ponders his next move.

He told Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg: "The idea is to talk to people and see the facilities."

His agent Guy Vandersmissen added: "Sunderland continue to be very interested. But logically we will visit the club before we take further steps and talk about a contract.

"We will see how Simon feels after this visit. We stress however that PSV remain a candidate."
