Simon Mignolet insists he is not thinking about his future at Liverpool, but is focused on working hard for the club.

The Belgian has not made a Premier League appearance for the Reds since January 1, when he featured in a 2-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

He was subsequently replaced by Loris Karius, who was made No 1 by Jurgen Klopp in the league and Champions League for the remainder of the season.

Despite Karius' departure to Besiktas in the summer, Mignolet remained second choice following the £67m arrival of Brazilian Alisson Becker from Roma.

Speaking this week on his current situation, Mignolet said: "I will go back to Liverpool and work hard.

"We have got the Huddersfield game to prepare for and I will always be there for the team.

"That's the only thing I can do at this moment. I am not thinking about my future at this moment in time.

"The only thing I can do is wait for my chance and work hard in training. I always try and be ready if I am playing or not playing.

"I always prepare myself in the same manner and when the opportunity comes along you have to grasp it."

Mignolet has featured just once for Liverpool this season, in the 2-1 Carabao Cup third round defeat to Chelsea.
