Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux will stay on loan at League One side Swindon Town after the club denied the Chilean's season-long spell at the County Ground had been cut short. Reports had suggested that the Chilean had reacted to being fined £50 for turning up late to training by paying the penalty in pennies.
The Daily Mail understood that Vigouroux's loan deal, which was not due to expire before the end of the season, had been cancelled after he was omitted from the team that lost 2-1 to Colchester United, while he also missed the draw with Doncaster Rovers. However, Swindon have moved to deny such reports and claim that the 21-year-old is now available for selection after an "individual indiscretion".
"Swindon Town can confirm that on-loan goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux's absence from the starting line-up last Saturday was as a result of an individual indiscretion," a statement on the club's official website read. "Vigouroux was late to a training session last week and was subsequently withdrawn from the starting XI against Colchester United.
"After the weekend, he was called to a meeting in Liverpool by his parent club's academy staff to explain his actions. Following on from this meeting, Vigouroux has now returned to SN1 [Swindon's postcode] and will be available for selection again by Swindon Town this weekend. Contrary to reports, his loan agreement has not been terminated. The club considers this disciplinary matter to have now been dealt with and would like to move on swiftly."
Since moving to the Wiltshire side at the start of August, Vigouroux has been a key part of Mark Cooper's side, keeping one clean sheet amid a run of three wins in his eight league appearances. The Liverpool youngster will be aiming to impress manager Brendan Rodgers this term in his first campaign in the Football League.
Vigouroux moved to Liverpool in 2014 after spending part of his youth career at Tottenham Hotspur. He penned a professional contract at White Hart Lane in 2013 but failed to make a single first team appearance, leading to his move to Merseyside where he is one of 12 players currently out on loan.
