"Young Jordon Ibe, what a talent he is," said Rodgers. "He's 17 years of age and he trains up with us in the first-team squad.
"He will need a loan period because he needs to get games, he needs to go and get the environment and get playing. But he's another one who we really see for the future. But he probably will need a loan period."
