Liverpool Winger Says His Goodbyes Ahead Of £15m Transfer

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe is set to complete his move to Bournemouth in the coming days.

The Liverpool Echo are this afternoon reporting that Ibe has said his goodbyes to teammates and cleared out his locker at the Melwood training ground, indicating that a transfer is imminent.

The Reds accepted a bid of £15m from Bournemouth last week, and the 20-year-old has reportedly already agreed terms with Eddie Howe’s side.

Ibe signed for Liverpool from Wycombe in 2011. Although he made a promising start to his Anfield career, particularly impressing in loan spells at Birmingham and Derby County, he did not progress at a level which the club were happy with.

In all, he made 58 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool, scoring four goals in that time.

Where once he had been touted as the perfect replacement for Raheem Sterling, he appeared to stagnate somewhat in the past twelve months.

He found opportunities under new manager Jurgen Klopp hard to come by last season, and by the end of the year had been usurped in the the “bright young winger role” by 18-year-old Sheyi Ojo.

He becomes the latest player to depart Liverpool, but he will by no means be the last. Martin Skrtel will finalise his move to Fenerbahce within the next day or so, while the likes of Christian Benteke, Joe Allen and Mario Balotelli are also available for sale at the right price.
