Jordan Ibe joins Derby County on loan


    Jordan Ibe has joined Championship Derby County on a season long loan from Liverpool.

    The 18-year-old was one of the standout performers of the Reds pre-season programme, and is tipped to be a future star at Anfield.

    Ibe has made three first team appearances for the Reds since signing from Wycombe Wanderers as a 15-year-old back in Janaury 2012.

    The young winger spent the latter part of last season on loan at Birmingham City, scoring once in 11 appearances for the Midlands outfit.

    He will now get the opportunity to play regular first team football in the Championship.

    Brendan Rodgers has added the likes of Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic to his squad this summer, pushing Ibe further down the Anfield pecking order.

    Andre Wisdom enjoyed a successful loan spell at Derby last season, and Brendan Rodgers is happy for Ibe to continue his development under former England boss Steve McLaren.
