News that Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has today been seen clearing out his locker at the Liverpool training ground and saying goodbye to one of the security guards there and it appears he’s leaving Liverpool for good.
But to which club he is moving to is a good question.
And since there has been no news that Newcastle or any other club for that matter have bid the £15M fee Liverpool placed on the 20 year-old’s head – other than AFC Bournemouth, we assume the talented winger will now be moving to the south coast club.
Jordan Ibe – moving to Bournemouth
Bournemouth had a £15M cash bid accepted by Liverpool for Ibe last week and we suppose he’s a replacement for Matt Ritchie who has moved to Newcastle.
Newcastle had reportedly been trying to do a part-exchange deal with Liverpool that included Gini Wijnaldum going to Liverpool and Jordan Ibe and about £10M coming the other way to Newcastle.
The Mail had reported that Ibe was balking on the move to Bournemouth, but it now appears that time has run out and Newcastle have not bid for Ibe, so it looks like he will move to Bournemouth.
Jordan Ibe – moving out today
Ibe moved to Liverpool from Wycombe Wanderers four years ago as a 16 year-old and in his four seasons on Merseyside he played 58 games with four goals for the Reds.
Jordan Ibe would have been an exciting signing for Newcastle.
