Jordon Ibe is set to commit his long-term future to Liverpool this week by signing a new contract, reports claim, but what can manager Brendan Rodgers realistically expect from the winger in 2015/16?
Neil Jones of the Liverpool Echo reported: “The youngster has agreed terms on a long-term deal, which will keep him at Anfield until 2020.
“It is reward for the 19-year-old’s impressive development, with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers confident Ibe can become a significant player for the club in the coming years.”
Just how significant a player he can be next season remains to be seen, but this is clearly a move designed to tie down the talents of one of the club’s highest-potential young players.
