The 18-year-old spent the latter stages of last season on loan at Birmingham City, helping them avoid relegation in dramatic circumstances on the final day of 2013/14.

Ibe impressed in pre-season for Liverpool this summer, earning valuable experience on the club’s tour of the USA.

Impressed with Andre Wisdom’s development during his loan spell at Derby last season, the Reds have allowed Ibe to join Steve McLaren’s side for 2014/15.
