article imageLiverpool complete signing of 16-year-old Jordan Ibe from Wycombe

Liverpool have completed the signing of Jordan Ibe – a 16-year-old striker from League One side Wycombe Wanderers – for an undisclosed fee.
Ibe, who was only 15 at the time, made his senior debut in a Carling Cup tie against Colchester United back in August.
That night Ibe became Wycombe's youngest-ever first-team player, breaking the previous record which set in 1982.
It was just 10 days short of his 16th bithday when Ibe smashed another record. After netting a suberb goal in Wycombe's 2-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday in October, he became the Football League's youngest-ever goalscorer.
Following his release from Charlton Athletic, Ibe signed for Wycombe when he was 12.
He will now finish secondary school in South London before moving to Merseyside.
Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is still extremely keen to sign Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly.
Swansea City and Liverpool's fierce rivals Everton have also been linked with Donnelly, meaning the prolific goalscorer has an important decision to make.
