Liverpool transfers: Surprise £400,000 deal agreed for former Tottenham goalkeeper

Posted by

Liverpool’s summer reshuffling of their goalkeeping ranks looks poised to continue with the selling of Lawrence Vigouroux to Swindon Town.

BBC Wiltshire understands that a £400,000 fee has been agreed for the 22-year-old to rejoin a club where he spent time on loan last season.

Vigoroux made 32 appearances for the Robins last term, either side of his loan being temporarily terminated for paying a £50 fine in pennies!

But the 6ft 5in stopper was invited back to the County Ground after apologising for his behaviour, and is now poised to return on a permanent basis.

The Chilean joined Liverpool in 2014 after being released by Tottenham Hotspur, but never made a competitive first-team appearance for the Reds.

And he is further than ever from making a breakthrough at Anfield because of the signing of Laris Karius from Mainz, and the development of Wales international Danny Ward.

Swindon finished 16th in League One last season, and have had a tumultuous 12 months in which they have had four managers, including owner Lee Power.
