SUNDERLAND keeper Simon Mignolet’s transfer to Liverpool has moved a step closer.

The Reds are about to offload Andy Carroll to West Ham. The striker has now passed a medical and will complete a £15million-plus move to Upton Park, where he has spent a year on loan.

Liverpool will take a significant loss on the 24-year-old, who signed from Newcastle for £35million in 2011.

However, it will bring in funds Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers need to help his own summer spending.

Mignolet is expected to seal a £10m move from Sunderland.

Rodgers is also tracking Shakhtar Donetsk’s £20million-rated forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori and Sevilla midfielder Luis Alberto.
