Jordon Ibe completes £15m transfer from Liverpool to Bournemouth

New Bournemouth signing Jordan Ibe says the club's style of play was a factor in his £15m move from Liverpool

Jordon Ibe has completed his £15m transfer from Liverpool to Bournemouth.

Ibe had a medical at the south coast club on Wednesday and will now fly out to Chicago to join up with their pre-season training camp in the United States, having signed a four-year contract.

Sky Sports News HQ reported last week that the Reds had accepted a bid from the Cherries after Eddie Howe had made the winger a priority target.

Ibe only signed a new five-year deal at Anfield last May but having struggled to secure a regular starting berth under Jurgen Klopp, he has left the club.

The 20-year-old - who has played four times for England Under-21s - featured just 12 times in the top flight for Liverpool last season and has been loaned out in the past to Birmingham and Derby.

Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said, "We're delighted to bring Jordon to the football club.

"He played plenty of football with Liverpool last season and we're looking forward to seeing him to continue to grow now with us, he's a huge prospect.

"We've now signed five players this summer, all of whom have an abundance of potential.

"It shows that we're serious about nurturing talent at this football club and we have the long term in mind when we say we want to stay in the Premier League."
