Liverpool want to hand young winger Jordon Ibe a new deal – then send him out on loan, writes Alan Nixon in the Sunday People.

The England Under-19 starlet has impressed Reds manager Brendan Rodgers after making his way into the first-team squad at Anfield.

Ibe, 17, who was signed from Wycombe, has made one senior appearance for the Reds and is regarded by the coaching staff to be a star of the future.

The Bermondsey born winger was released from his Charlton aged just twelve having spent four years at the south London club and was snapped up by then Wycombe boss Paul Lambert.

The Scot left soon after but Ibe remained and aged just 15 years and 244 days he was handed his debut under Gary Waddock when he came on a sub in their Carling Cup win over Colchester in August 2011.

Ibe wrote his place into the record books when he hen became the youngest league scorer for the club after finding the goal with an equaliser on his first start in a 2-1 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday just ten days short of his 16th birthday.
