AFC Bournemouth will part ways with Jordon Ibe this summer.

Ibe joined the Cherries in the 2016 summer transfer window for a club record £14m.

However, the winger has failed to live up to expectations in the 4 years following his arrival from Liverpool.

Since rocking up in Dorset the 24-year-old has amassed just 78 Premier League appearances, scoring 3 times.

Eddie Howe’s use of the player has been frugal this season, with Ibe’s last top flight run out coming in August 2019.

In fact, Ibe has just 48 Premier League minutes under his belt across two substitute appearances this campaign.

Matters off the field have also brought the Bournemouth man under the microscope, having been fined and banned from driving for 16 months in March for failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Ibe was then stopped by police in last month for driving whilst disqualified, before revealing in a statement on social media that he was in rehabilitation for mental health issues.

The Cherries then launched an internal investigation into the player’s behaviour after Ibe posted an image of himself visiting a barber during the coronavirus lockdown.

Speaking to newspaper The Sun, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said of Ibe:

“He’s not training with us and he hasn’t for some time.

“His contract expires at the end of June and we are not going to offer him a new deal.

“I have no regrets signing him and I’m not going to sit here and criticise anybody.

“For Jordon there is the sadness from my side because it just didn’t quite happen for him on a consistent basis.”
