Former Liverpool forward Jordon Ibe to leave Bournemouth on July 1

Former Liverpool forward Jordon Ibe will leave Bournemouth on July 1 even if the current season is not complete.

According to reports from Sky Sports, the winger will not be offered any extension by the club after failing to spark since joining them in 2016 from Liverpool.

The winger who joined in a £16m deal is one of the seven players out of contract at Bournemouth on June 30 with others being Ryan Fraser, Charlie Daniels, Andrew Surman, Simon Francis, Artur Boruc and Brad Smith.

Ibe leaving news comes at a time when he is being investigated by the club for breaching lockdown rules after posting an image on social media of him getting a haircut, which has since been deleted.

The player has since apologized for his action by saying: "I didn't think it through and I apologise. I made sure to wear protective equipment but I didn't realise it was in breach of the guidelines."

Ibe has had a difficult time at Bournemouth, struggling to cement a place in Eddie Howe's first-team plans. He has scored only three goals in 44 Premier League appearances across almost four seasons.

There has been a debate if players whose contracts end on June 30 can leave their respective clubs despite the season not being through and the situation is likely to cause confusion among other clubs who have the same situation.

The Premier League confirmed last week that clubs can negotiate short term deals with such players but if there is no agreement, the said players will be allowed to leave their stations without any problems.
