Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe will spend the rest of the 2014-15 campaign on loan with Championship side Derby County.

The Rams confirmed the addition on Friday: 

Manager Steve McClaren was happy to see another promising young player make a stop with his club, as noted in the official release: "We're delighted that Liverpool have again chosen to loan us one of their promising young players. Jordon Ibe is someone who we've been aware of for quite a while and have been impressed whenever we've seen him in action."

Ibe is an 18-year-old England international with intriguing attacking potential. He wasn't slated to play a major role with the Reds this season, however. Moving to Derby should allow him to see the pitch on a more consistent basis to continue his development.
