Derby hoping to complete Jordan Ibe deal within next 24 hours

Share

Liverpool are hoping to do some business in the last few days of the transfer window. The Anfield club may still be looking to add one more central midfielder to their ranks, should they sell Lucas Leiva to Napoli. Apart from that, there could be few loan deals as well, with Brendan Rodgers may look to send few youngsters on loan to gain exposure.

And one of them is the highly talented Jordan Ibe, who is seen as a brightest future prospect for Liverpool.

Reds manager has spoken highly of him during the pre-season and expects him to play a big role for Liverpool in the next few years.

However, currently Rodgers cannot offer him regular football at Anfield and therefore has decided to send him on loan, where he would get regular game time and enough exposure. Ibe is set to join Derby County on a season long loan this summer and the deal could be completed within next 24 hours.

Ibe was heading to Bolton earlier last week but their manager, Dougie Freedman, has admitted their chase for the England Under-19 international is over.

“Jordon looks like he is going to Derby,” said Freedman.

 

“It looks like we have missed out on that one once again.

 

“The contribution that we would have had to make financially was too difficult for us to meet.”

Derby County are expecting to sign him within the next 24 hours and wants him to play a part in Saturday’s Championship clash against Ipswich Town.

  1. A good move for the young Jordan Ibe. More playing time at Derby will mold him into that great liverpool player of the next generation.

    • I hope you are right, but I fear that we will never see him in a Liverpool shirt again, except possibly in a pre season friendly. None of our loan players ever come back to the fist team.
