Liverpool winger Jordan Ibe has joined Championship outfit Birmingham City on a youth loan until the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.
Promising forward Ibe joins the Blues looking for some first team experience that will stand him in good stead for the future as he looks to force his way into Brendan Rodgers' side.
Ibe has made two senior appearances for Liverpool this season, and is widely regarded as one of Liverpool's most exciting prospects, after he signed for the club from Wycombe Wanderers in 2012. Ibe is also a full member of the England U19's side.
Birmingham boss Clark is no stranger to the loan market due to a lack of funds available at St Andrews this season.
The 18-year-old will join fellow youngsters such as Albert Rusnak and Emyr Huws at Blues, who are also looking to break into the first team at Manchester City.
And with Birmingham looking to escape from a relegation fight, Brendan Rodgers will undoubtedly hope that Ibe gains the necessary experience needed to make it in the top flight of the Premier League.
Ibe will go straight into the Lee Clark's side for their game against managerless Blackpool tomorrow.
