Stewart, a 20-year-old centre back who previously had a loan spell at Crewe, has signed a two-year deal according to Sky Sports.

The player himself spoke of his delight at the move on twitter:

Meanwhile, Vigouroux we also understand is moving north to Liverpool. He was on trial at the club earlier this year, and similar to Stewart signs after his contract at Spurs expired.

The 20-year-old played for Alex Inglethorpe’s under-21s against Fulham in April. He’s previously had a loan spell at Conference side Hyde

Update: The player has now confirmed the move via twitter too:

Both players worked with Liverpool under 21 coach Inglethorpe at White Hart Lane and he is likely to have been instrumental in their moves to Merseyside.

Vigouroux is Chilean (so he’ll help Alexis Sanchez settle in at Anfield ;-) ).
