By Amir Mir
Liverpool winger Jordan Ibe has passed a medical at Bournemouth after a £15million bid was accepted for his services.
Sky Sports claim that the 20-year-old is expected to complete the move on Thursday and end a four-year spell at Anfield.
It is said he will then be flown straight out to Chicago to join his new teammates who are currently on a pre-season tour of America.
Sky Sports reported on their official Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon that Ibe has passed his medical and is set to finalise a transfer to the south coast club.

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 Jurgen Klopp in 2015-16.

Despite signing a five-year contract with the Merseysiders last year, Klopp has decided to cash in on Ibe as he continues his overhaul of the Liverpool squad.
The Merseyside outfit purchased Southampton winger Sadio Mane for a club-record fee of £35million, which put the England Under-21 international further down the Liverpool pecking order.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has added the London-born winger to his ranks after player of the year Matt Ritchie departed for Championship side Newcastle for a fee of £12million.
