Ainsworth – Starlet Should Ignore Chelsea, Liverpool & United Interet
Wycombe Wanderers captain Gareth Ainsworth has urged starlet Jordan Ibe to remain at his home town club despite interest from the Premier League.
Ibe, 15, is a target for trio Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United with all three thought to be tracking the exciting youngster. Ibe has already made his senior debut for Wanderers and even scored in their 2-1 lost to Sheffield Wednesday, and Ainsworth believes the starlet is destined for great things but hopes he remains with Wycombe for the time being.
“Hopefully he can make a big name for himself,” Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio.
“But even more I hope he does it at Wycombe to start off with because we want to keep hold of players here.
“He’s uncoachable in some ways – the way he goes forward, takes people on and scores goals,” explained the former QPR and Preston winger.
“He’s got all you could ever wish for in an up-and-coming youngster.
“The goal he scored on Saturday, we have seen him do that in training so many times. It’s not a fluke, it’s not a one off, he is the real deal.”
