Liverpool have negotiated for three key clauses to be inserted into the £15million deal that takes Jordan Ibe to Bournemouth, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo claim that the 20-year-old will have caveats in his contract that will benefit both Liverpool and former club Wycombe Wanderers.
This comes after Ibe cleared out his locker at the Merseysiders’ Anfield training base on Tuesday before heading to the south coast to join Bournemouth.
Liverpool will firstly have to pay Wycombe £2.25million as part of a 15 per cent per cent sell-on fee that was agreed between the two clubs when the youngster moved to Anfield in 2012.
Liverpool have also negotiated buy-back and sell-on clauses in the contract with Bournemouth.
The buy-back clause would allow the Merseysiders first refusal over the attacker in the future if they wanted to bring him back to Anfield.
The sell-on clause would hand them a future share of the profit were Bournemouth to make money on Ibe when they sell him.
Ibe broke into the Liverpool first-team two years ago under Brendan Rodgers and caught the eye with some impressive displays on the flanks but his progress stalled under Klopp in 2015-16.
There were mixed responses to the bumper fee for the youngster – with some fans feeling £15million is a great deal for Liverpool, while others are hoping the youngster doesn’t turn into a great international star that got away.
