Derby County have signed Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe on a season-long loan, BBC Radio Derby reports.

The 18-year-old joined the Reds from Wycombe in January 2012 and has made three first-team appearances.

Ibe also had a loan spell with Birmingham City at the end of last season, scoring one goal in 11 games.

Rams head coach Steve McClaren said: "He is a direct player with plenty of ability and he will certainly strengthen the attacking options."

Ibe follows Andre Wisdom in joining the Rams from Liverpool, the defender playing a key role in helping the club reach the Championship play-off last term.

McClaren added: "We're delighted that Liverpool have again chosen to loan us one of their promising young players.

"Jordon is someone who we've been aware of for quite a while and have been impressed whenever we've seen him in action.

"He has a lot of potential and we believe that we can help his career development."

The England Under-19 international was 15 when he made his senior debut for Wycombe in 2011 and scored his first professional goal two months later.
