Done deal: Liverpool seal 22-year-old terms after paperwork finalised
By Alex Taylor
Liverpool have confirmed that goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has left the club to join Swindon.
The 22-year-old Chilean spent the 2015-16 season on loan at the League One outfit and has now made his move permanent.
He was initially sent back from his season-long loan last October after paying a £50 fine for turning up late to training in one pence pieces.
Following an apology, Vigourous subsequently returned to his loan spell with the Robins, which only ended in March through injury.
The 22-year-old was signed from Tottenham in 2014 but failed to make a first team appearance for the Reds.

The 6ft 4in shot stopper has signed a three year deal with his new club after moving for an undisclosed fee.
A Liverpool statement read: “Liverpool Academy goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has today completed a permanent transfer to Swindon Town.
“Vigouroux, who joined the Reds in the summer of 2014, has now committed his future to the Robins by sealing a switch to the County Ground.”
“Liverpool FC wishes Lawrence the best of luck in his future career.”
The youngster made 36 appearances while on loan in 2015-16 but did not do enough to ever compete for a place in the Merseyside club’s first team.
The move leaves Simon Mignolet, Loris Karius and Danny Ward as the club’s top three keepers, with Adam Bogdan set to head on loan.
In other Liverpool transfer news, it has emerged that the Reds are interested in signing Moussa Sissoko – and it is fair to say quite a few supporters on Twitter were not too happy with the club’s reported transfer target.
