Jordon Ibe was snapped up by the Academy from Wycombe Wanderers at the end of 2011 and is seen as a great prospect for the future, having risen quickly through the ranks.
The talented youngster, who can play up front or out on the wing, started his Anfield career at the Academy and began life at Liverpool with the U18 squad.
The Bermondsey-born wide-man possesses a combination of phenomenal speed and powerful upper-body strength, with his growth earning a place in the first-team squad that travelled to North America on pre-season tour in 2012.
After a series of outstanding displays in the FA Youth Cup, the then 17-year-old was handed a senior debut by Brendan Rodgers on the final day of the 2012-13 season and impressed at Anfield with an energetic display which included an assist for the winning goal.
Ibe subsequently participated in a second successive tour with the Reds - this time to Indonesia, Australia and Thailand in the summer of 2013 - and once more caught the eye with performances worthy of the first team.
Now a semi-permanent fixture in the manager's matchday squads, Jordon is aiming to emulate the achievements of Raheem Sterling by establishing himself in Rodgers' plans during the years to come.
As part of that development and to further increase his experience, Ibe temporarily joined Championship side Birmingham City in February 2014 in a loan deal until the end of the campaign, helping the Blues to avoid relegation.
