Jordan Ibe happy with decision to join Liverpool

Liverpool attacker Jordan Ibe is delighted with his progress this season.

Ibe joined Liverpool's Academy from Wycombe Wanderers in December 2011.

He admits upping sticks from home at the age of 15 wasn't an easy decision - but it was an opportunity he simply could not turn down.

"I was my first big move and it meant moving away from my friends," explained Ibe to the Liverpool Echo.

"Fortunately, my family have moved up with me and whenever I get time off I usually go down and spend time with my friends.

"I had to think hard about the decision to move. I wasn't stalling but moving to Liverpool is a big move.

"I was still 15, soon to be 16, and so was caught in two minds about whether I should stay or go. The manager at Wycombe was asking if I was staying or going and I didn't know what to say."
