Bournemouth have completed the signing of Jordon Ibe, who has inked a four-year contract with the South Coast club.

Ibe joins Bournemouth from Liverpool, where he made 58 appearances in four-and-a-half years as a Red.

The 20-year-old winger is a highly-rated talent, but his relationship with Jurgen Klopp never took off as a summer transfer away from Anfield was expected.

Having paid a club record $20 million for Ibe, the Cherries clearly see the young speedster in the starting XI. Working with a young manager in Eddie Howe, Ibe will be have a better opportunity to showcase his talents with consistent playing time at the Vitality Stadium.

Ibe will fly straight to the United States to meet up with the team, who are currently training in Chicago.
