SWINDON Town are close to extending goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux’s contract which runs out this summer, according to manager Richie Wellens.

Back-up stopper Luke McCormick is also close to agreeing an extension to his current one-year contract, with Wellens confirming this afternoon that he has no plans of changing the club’s current goalkeeping structure.

Chairman Lee Power is negotiating a deal with the 25-year-old, who has 124 games under his belt as a Swindon player.

The former Liverpool U21s stopper initially joined Town on a loan deal in August 2015, before agreeing to a three-year deal the summer afterwards.

Vigouroux was sent to Irish club Waterford in February of last year, but returned to Town in the summer following the arrival of previous Town boss Phil Brown.

Wellens said: “I’ve left that (Vigouroux deal) with the chairman, we’re close on both goalkeepers.

“The goalkeeping department is very strong at this club, so I don’t see any reason why we should change that.

“We’re trying to sort contracts for both of them, because I wouldn’t even call Luke McCormick a number two.

“He’s a number one that is battling for a position with Lawrence (Vigouroux).

“Lawrence has done great, but if he gets injured, loses form or picks up a suspension then I would be very comfortable putting Luke McCormick in goal.”

Meanwhile, third choice goalkeeper Will Henry has this week returned to Swindon Supermarine following the suspension of Lee Spalding’s number one stopper Martin Horsell.

Wellens explained that Henry’s development is still in the very early stages, adding that game time at non-league level serves more purpose than playing in games for the reserves team.

He said: “In terms of goalkeeping, Will Henry is a baby.

“I’d rather have him playing games than being involved in the ones that we put on.

“It’s great for his development.”
