Lawrence Vigouroux is reportedly set to join Swindon Town on a permanent basis, with the Liverpool U21 goalkeeper valued at around £400,000.
Vigouroux, 22, had a loan spell with the Robins this season, where he made 36 appearances, keeping five clean sheets.
Despite his season being cut short due to the injury, local media are reporting that both clubs have reportedly agreed a £400,000 fee for the Chilean.

Vigouroux joined the Reds in the summer of 2014, following Academy Director Alex Inglethorpe from Premier League rivals Spurs, having made 12 U21 Premier League appearances.

With both Danny Ward and Ryan Fulton both established at U21 level, Vigouroux found it hard to cement his place as the number 1, playing just ten games for the Reds in his two seasons at Melwood.

In August 2015, Vigouroux joined Swindon on a season-long loan alongside U21s defender Jordan Williams.

The Chilean impressed on his debut season in the Football League, starring in 36 games in all competitions despite Swindon chopping and changing managers throughout the year.

This is the second time where Swindon have been interested in signing the goalkeeper on a permanent basis, after the League One side was reportedly keen in January.

Robins chairman Lee Power was reportedly reluctant to pay the fee as the chairman wants it to be a worthwhile investment.

However, six months later, Vigouroux is set to join Swindon on a permanent basis. His last game for Liverpool came last month when he travelled with Michael Beale’s U21s for a post-season tour of the USA, featuring in both games against Sacramento Republic FC.
