Jordon Ibe is eager to sign a new contract with Liverpool before the end of the season. The 19-year-old winger was recalled from his loan spell at Derby County in January and swiftly justified Brendan Rodgers's decision with an excellent performance in his first start back on Merseyside against Everton.
A knee injury halted his progress in March but Ibe has since featured in four of the club's last five league games.
And the London-born winger is now eager to follow in the footsteps of Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson and commit to a new long-term deal at Anfield, although he will be leaving the negotiations down to his parents.
"My parents are sorting that out with the club," Ibe told the Daily Mail on the subject of a new deal. "Hopefully everything will just get sorted by the end of the season. I don't believe in having an agent. I don't really see the need for one to be fair. My parents do the same job and they are my family which is number one to me. I can trust them and they are the best people."
Ibe's progress over the past year has seen him draw comparisons with Raheem Sterling. Unlike Ibe, though, Sterling's future at the club remains in doubt after the England international refused the club's offer of a new deal worth a reported £100,000 per week.
Sterling further strained his relationship with the club after holding a tell-all interview with the BBC over his future, where he revealed talks over a new deal were on hold until the end of the season.
Rodgers has since claimed the relationship between the club and player remains healthy and insists there is no possibility of the former Queens Park Rangers youngster being sold in the summer.
"We had a couple of good meetings. He came to my house and had a good chat on a personal level as well," Rodgers said, as quoted by the Mirror.
"It's not just about the football side, it's also about his welfare because he's still young and he's been through a lot in the last couple of years. We talked generically and I think he's in a good place at the moment.
"We've made that clear from the beginning and the owners are very much supportive of that. Raheem won't be going anywhere this summer, even if there's not a deal agreed."
