Simon Mignolet insists he isn't interested in making a move to another club at the end of the season, with the Arsenal and Manchester United target insisting he's happy at Sunderland.
Mignolet was reportedly being watched by a host of top Premier League clubs after a string of impressive performances for Sunderland, and last week his representative suggested a move could be on the cards.
But while United and Arsenal were both reportedly looking for a keeper to give more stability to their backline, Mignolet claims he is achieving all of his goals with the Black Cats.
"I felt I wanted to communicate with the club's fans following the media reaction to comments made by my representative, which I feel were taken out of context and not a true reflection," he told the Sunderland website.
"Of course, my ambition is to regain the number one spot with my national team, but I feel I can do that with Sunderland.
"I was playing as Belgium's number one a year ago and hopefully that can be the case in the future.
"I am happy at Sunderland - a club I am proud to represent. I will continue focusing on my football, starting with Saturday's game against Fulham."
United have continually insisted that they aren't in the market for a keeper, with Sir Alex Ferguson arguing he has complete faith in David De Gea to find consistency that will create a backline reminiscent of Edwin van der Sar.
But with the spotlight concentrated on the keeper, his poorer showings are making way for rumours that Ferguson's patience might run out and United may make a move for another stopper in the summer.
Meanwhile, while Arsenal are believed to still trust Wojciech Szczesny with the number one spot, Arsene Wenger is reportedly looking for more depth and would prefer an alternative option to Lukasz Fabianski or Vito Mannone.
