Vigouroux, whose deal has been confirmed by the Liverpool Echo, joined us from Tottenham Hotspur last summer and has recently been training with the first-team at Melwood, despite never making a senior appearance.
He was initially brought in as competition for Danny Ward – who has appeared on the bench on several occasions this season – and Ryan Fulton. He has played nine times for the youth team, keeping three clean-sheets.
Last season he spent time on loan with Conference strugglers Hyde, making 12 appearances. He failed to inspire a single victory as The Tigers went on to be relegated with just ten points, conceding 119 goals in the process… a tough introduction to senior football to say the least!
Vigouroux is of Chilean descent and lists his number one footballing ambition as representing his country at international level – according to an interview with our official website.
