Birighitti, 26, moved from Newcastle Jets to English Premier League club Swansea City in last year’s off-season but has failed to break into the first team.

According to Dutch reports, Willem II are considering bringing Birighitti, who has another year to run on his Swansea contract, in on a loan deal.

Willem II are keen to sign a new goalkeeper, with current number one Kostas Lamprou to leave the club in the off-season.

Birighitti has been behind Lukasz Fabianski, Kristoffer Nordfeldt and Gerhard Tremmel in the pecking order at Swansea.

The one-time Socceroo was named in the Professional Footballers’ Australia A-League Team of the Season last term when with the Jets.

Willem II are currently 11th in the Eredivisie, safe from relegation but unable to qualify for Europe. They are managed by former Vitesse defender Erwin van de Looi.
