Liverpool reserve goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has today signed a new two-year deal. The 21-year-old, London-born Chilean moved to the club last summer on a free from Tottenham and has impressed with the reserves, passing Danny Ward on the depth chart at Melwood and earning a stay through 2017 as he looks to break through to the first team.

Vigouroux has made nine U21 Premier League appearances this season, conceding ten goals and earning three shutouts along the way. Liverpool U21 manager Alex Inglethorpe, who previously managed Spurs’ U18 side, rated the goalkeeper highly, and it led to the club offering him a trial and then contract last summer when his Spurs deal expired.

Before ending up at Tottenham’s academy, Vigouroux began his youth career with Brentford and spent a loan spell at Hyde FC in England’s fifth-tier. While at Tottenham, he started for the youth side against Barcelona, PSG, and Wolfsburg in the now defunct NextGen series.
