He won't struggle to find a top team, he is the second best goalkeeper in the world after all.

Oh wait...

This is a bit annoying as they were previously linked with Mignolet, but I can't say I'm surprised. Ospina's better, (slightly) younger, and probably cheaper.

Best thing for both parties, only frustrating thing is that it is only a loan with an option to buy. No idea why we couldn't just sell him, but hopefully he at least impresses in Naples. I have to I'm shocked no-one took him considering it was only £5-6m, he is a no.1 international keeper who is easily top half level. I don't think his wages are to outrageous as well, but who knows with us.

For me he was a fantastic second keeper to have on the books.  Barcelona for example have Cillessen who when called upon has been tremendous. We have had Cech as first team keeper and Ospina on the bench which has been decent enough.  Now we have Leno which I would expect that Cech will at some point (don't know why it hasn't happened already) become the first team keeper.
