Liverpool consider bringing Jordan Ibe back to Anfield

Jordan Ibe, playing for Derby County, has been the best player in the Championship this season, playing. Ibe’s recent performances have attracted lots of praise from his current manager Steve Mclaren. Ibe’s impressive run of form has prompted Liverpool to bring the exciting prospect back to Anfield during the January Transfer Window. Jordan Ibe is currently playin for Derby in the Championship.

Liverpool have the option of bring Ibe to Anfield during the transfer window and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodger has not shied away from admitting that he has a decision to make regarding the future of the exciting winger Jordan Ibe.

On being asked about Joradn Ibe’s future Brendan Rodgers had these words to say:

“It is a loan to the end of season but we could bring him back if we need to because there is a review in January,”

“We need to decide whether it is the right thing to bring him back or continue with the great development he’s getting at Derby at the moment.

“I’ve seen Jordan in a lot of the games and he’s been outstanding. That’s the reason why we sent him out – we felt that getting that game experience would help him.

Jordan Ibe came off age on the Boxing Day clash against Birmingham where he showed a truly remarkable defensive side of his game which left Steve Mclaren saying:

“You cannot coach and teach what he has got,” McClaren said.

“He’s phenomenal. You saw him in the 80th minute tracking back, putting tackles in and getting us goal kicks, and that is the important side, the horrible things you have to do at the top level.

“He is learning that, he is doing that, and getting his rewards because at the other end of the pitch he is a constant threat.

One of other Jordan Ibe’s eye catching displays came against Chelsea where he virtually man-handled Chelsea’s left back Cesar Azpilicueta. Ibe came off the bench and threatened to take the game away from the blues from an almost unsalable position.

Such displays by Ibe must prompt Rodgers to bring back the 19 years old prospect to Anfield and cut his current loan deal with Derby in the upcoming January Transfer window. We would keep a close eye on how this story develops over the new few days.
