Liverpool fans react to Jordon Ibe's loan move to Derby County - 'he'll be a pivotal part of our team'

Jordon Ibe's loan move to Derby County was confirmed on Friday afternoon.

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has been sent on a season-long loan to Derby County

The 18-year-old is one of the most promising talents in the Reds' squad and after a successful pre-season tour of the United States, Ibe has been sent to the Rams to get regular game time. 

His first team opportunities may have been limited at Anfield this season with the signings of Lazar Markovic and Adam Lallana increasing competition within the side. Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling are also in contention for places in the wider positions, whilst 20-year-old Suso could also be considered by Brendan Rodgers.

The youngster has shown plenty of promise and pace during his time in a red shirt and could be a star for the Reds in the future, but he needs to work on his end product. 

Ibe has previously had a loan spell at Birmingham City, and follows in the footsteps of Andre Wisdom, who had a successful time working under Derby boss Steve McClaren.

Liverpool fans rate Ibe highly, which is clear from their reaction on twitter:
