Jordon Ibe: Heading south

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has agreed personal terms with Bournemouth ahead of a record £15million move to the Vitality Stadium.

Ibe only signed a new five-year deal at Anfield last May but having struggled to secure a regular starting berth under Jurgen Klopp, he looks to be on his way to the south coast, with the Reds said to have negotiated a buy-back and sell-on clause option into his contract.

The fee is believed to have already been agreed between the two clubs, as Cherries boss Eddie Howe looks to strengthen his squad ahead of their second season in the Premier League and add to his attacking ranks after selling Matt Ritchie to Newcastle United for £12m last week.

The deal eclipses the previous record transfer fee the Cherries laid out for Benik Afobe in January when Bournemouth paid Wolves £13m for the striker.

The 20-year-old who has played four times for England U21s – featured 27 times in the Premier League for Liverpool last season, scoring once, and has previously gone out on loan to Birmingham City and Derby County in the Championship.

Ibe who joined Liverpool in 2012 at 16 years old from Wycombe Wanderers said goodbye to his Liverpool team-mates and staff on Tuesday, with the winger expected to undergo a medical at Bournemouth ahead of the proposed move.
