Newcastle United were said to be interested in snapping up the Bournemouth wide-man.
Newcastle United fans think that they have had a lucky escape, as Jordon Ibe wasn’t interested in a move to St. James’ Park.
Newcastle ended up bringing in Andy Carroll on deadline day, as well as Emil Krafth.
And most Magpies fans do not appear to be at all concerned that they missed out on Ibe.
We shouldnt even be linked with a player way down the pecking order at Bournemouth anyway.— Carl H (@CGHurst86) August 8, 2019
This guy is a complete myth! We shouldn’t even be thinking of him.— IvanTosic (@IvanTosic17) August 8, 2019
What a flop he was at Bournemouth. Liverpool grinning at the £15m they got for him.— Tom Davidson (@TomDavidson09) August 8, 2019
The North East doesn’t want Jordan Ibe to move here to play football— Don Shola (@Angel_Batistuta) August 8, 2019

Don’t want or need him anyway— bigrobnufc (@bigrobnufc) August 8, 2019

Bournemouth paid £15 million (Guardian) to sign Ibe from Liverpool back in 2016, but he has never lived up to his potential on the south coast.
Ibe now looks unlikely to play much for Eddie Howe’s side over the upcoming campaign, especially after Harry Wilson joined.
If Ibe had signed for Newcastle it would have been tough for him to break into Steve Bruce’s line-up too.
Newcastle have brought in Allan Saint-Maximin this summer, which has strengthened their options out wide.
