Liverpool starlet lined up for January loan exit

Published Add your comment

Liverpool could be set to let one of their brightest young talents temporarily leave Anfield, with reports suggesting that a Championship club are keen on a loan move for starlet Jordon Ibe.

According to the Daily Mirror, Derby County - now managed by former England boss Steve McClaren - are interested in Ibe and hope to convince Reds boss Brendan Rodgers to send him to Pride Park within the next few days.

17-year-old Ibe, who joined Liverpool from League 2 outfit Wycombe Wanderers in December, is obviously not viewed as a player who can have an immediate impact as Rodgers' side seek to re-assert their long-lost status as credible Premier League title contenders, with the same publication suggesting that he will be allowed to leave in order to secure regular playing time.

Despite that, however, Ibe appears to be highly-rated at Anfield - a factor clearly evidenced by reports that claim the England U19 international is set to be offered a five-year deal to remain on Merseyside when he turns 18 next month.

Liverpool, who currently occupy second position behind Arsenal in the Premier League standings, face a massive fixture this weekend in the form of Saturday's Merseyside derby against fierce rivals Everton at Goodison Park.
