Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has sent winger Jordan Ibe on loan to Birmingham City for the rest of the season.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Ibe will link up with the Championship side as they look to avoid relegation to English football's third tier.

Ibe has made just two first-team appearances for the senior team, and Rodgers believes his development will best be served at Birmingham.

Blues boss Lee Clark is not afraid to give opportunities to talented youngsters - he had Ravel Morrison at Birmingham and currently has youth team players from Manchester City and Manchester United at the club.

Tom Thorpe and Federico Macheda are on loan at Birmingham from United while Albert Rusnak and Emyr Huws are on loan from City.

Ibe joins them this week, and will be keen to get some first-team football under his belt.

The 18-year-old needs time on the pitch and Rodgers clearly believes Clark is the right manager to bring his game on.

Ibe signed for Liverpool from Wycombe back in 2012, and the England under-19 international is tipped for first-team stardom.

Rodgers is not afraid to include Anfield youth team players in the first-team if they prove themselves good enough, and the Liverpool boss will no doubt be keeping a close eye on Ibe with a view to next season.

Liverpool currently have 13 players out on loan.
