Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has joined Birmingham City on a youth loan until the end of the season.

The Sky Bet Championship club confirmed the Liverpool winger has gone straight into the matchday squad for the trip to Blackpool on Saturday.

An England Under-19 international, he trained with the Birmingham squad on Friday ahead of the game.

The 18-year-old has made three senior appearances for Liverpool, including two this season, and he has played for England at both under-18 and under-19 level.

Ibe joined the Liverpool Academy from Wycombe in December 2011.
