Birmingham sign Ibe on loan


Jordan Ibe has put pen to paper on a loan deal to Birmingham for the rest of the season.

The young Liverpool winger, 18, has made one substitute appearance for the Reds this season, coming on with 15 minutes remaining when Liverpool trounced Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield in early February.

Ibe is expected to make a big impact on the game and has attracted a good reputation following his move to Liverpool from now League 2 Wycombe in 2011.

The England under 19 international was only 15 years old when he made his senior debut when Wycombe met Colchester in the league cup at Adams Park. He scored his first professional goal two months later when the Chairboys lost 1-2 to Sheffield Wednesday after a superb run.

Birmingham’s new man also scored on his England under 19 debut, a 6-1 victory over Estonia last September.

He is available for Birmingham’s next match, away to Blackpool on Saturday.
