The 19 year old has proven to be a big hit at Derby scoring five goals in 22 appearances with Steve McClaren describing some of his performances as “unplayable”.
Liverpool could theoretically bring back Ibe without a hitch after learning from their mistake with Divock Origi and inserting a clause into the loan deal that allows them to end it prematurely.
Ibe is a powerful winger who could provide much needed impetus to what has been a weak and lacklustre forward line for the Reds this season following the departure of Luis Suarez and the long term injuries that have hampered Daniel Sturridge’s involvement.
The youngster has made just three first team appearances for Rodger’s side after being handed his debut by the Northern Irishman on the final day of the 2012/13 season.
“It is a loan to the end of season but we could bring him back if we need to because there is a review in January,” Rodgers said according to Liverpool Echo.
“We need to decide whether it is the right thing to bring him back or continue with the great development he’s getting at Derby at the moment. If we do bring him back it will be to contribute.
“He’s doing very well. He’s 19 years of age and he’s going to be a great player for Liverpool in the future.”
