Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux's proposed loan move to League One outfit Swindon Town has now been officially completed, two days after he lined up against his parent club in a pre-season friendly.

The 21-year-old, a former member of Tottenham's academy who arrived at Anfield in July 2014, completed 90 minutes for the Robins on a trial basis at the County Ground on 2 August, yet was unable to prevent Mark Cooper's side falling to a narrow 2-1 defeat courtesy of a sublime debut goal from new signing Christian Benteke and a late Sheyi Ojo winner.

Vigouroux obviously did enough to impress with the manner of his performance, though, with Liverpool belatedly confirming he has followed fellow youngsters Jordan Williams and Kevin Stewart in joining Swindon for the entire 2015-16 season.


Swindon also announced the deal and the Chilean subsequently told the club's official website: "Swindon's a great club. You saw that by the fans yesterday. It's a good place for me to play football because they like to play football.

"I know quite a few of the lads - they remembered me from Spurs and I've also got Jordan Williams and Kevin Stewart here - Kev keeps saying I'm following him around everywhere but that's football. I've just got to get my head down and try and impress everyone.

"I thought I did well last season and hopefully I'll kick on again this season at Swindon. I need some games out in the real world - that's what I need to do and I'm happy to do it."

Vigouroux is one of a number of new arrivals at Swindon this summer. Drissa Traore, Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill and Fabien Robert have all arrived on permanent deals alongside loanees Stewart, Williams and Jordan Turnbull and fellow trialist Ellis Iandolo has also signed professional terms.

Liverpool, meanwhile, now have seven players out on loan, the most high-profile of which include right-back Andre Wisdom at newly promoted Norwich City and underwhelming attacking midfielder Luis Alberto at Deportivo.

Lloyd James has also joined troubled Blackpool, while Vigouroux's key goalkeeping rival Danny Ward is currently proving his worth in the Scottish Premiership and Europa League qualifying rounds with Aberdeen.

Both Liverpool and Swindon begin their respective domestic league campaigns this weekend. The latter take on Phil Parkinson's Bradford at home in Wiltshire, with Brendan Rodgers's side facing a trip to the Britannia Stadium in a bid to avenge their humiliating 6-1 defeat to Stoke suffered on the final day of last season.
