Liverpool sign teenager Ibe

Liverpool have completed the signing of teenage prospect Jordan Ibe from Wycombe after the two clubs reached an agreement on Tuesday.

Ibe, 16, shot to prominence this season, becoming the youngest ever player to represent Wycombe in the Football League and the youngest scorer for the Buckinghamshire club in its history.

A host of Premier League clubs were monitoring Ibe but the forward will now move to Anfield.

Wanderers manager Gary Waddock said: ''It's a fantastic move for him. He's a phenomenal talent which is why we gave him a chance to show what he can do at first-team level.

''Obviously we wanted to keep him, but we didn't want to stand in the way of an opportunity he deserves. I have no doubt in my mind that he will go on to become a big star and I will be keeping a close eye on his progress. I would like to wish him and his family all the best for the future.''

Bermondsey-born Ibe arrived at Wycombe as a 12-year-old after being released by Charlton. After two superb seasons in the club's youth team, he burst onto the scene for the first team by scoring a superb goal against Staines in a pre-season friendly this summer.

He made his senior debut in a Carling Cup clash against Colchester in August aged just 15 years and 244 years, and scored a stunning individual goal on his first ever professional start in a npower League One fixture against Sheffield Wednesday in October.

In total, Ibe made 11 first-team appearances for Wycombe.
