Jordon Ibe has fuelled speculation linking him with a move away from Liverpool with his activity on social media.
The 20-year-old winger, left out of the matchday squad for Sunday’s 4-1 home win over Stoke City, subsequently removed all references to the club from his Twitter profile. His account on the social network has otherwise been dormant for just under a year.
Ibe also posted an image on Instagram, which carried the message: “God has your best interest at heart. When a door closes, you don’t known what God is saving you from."
A number of supporters, possibly reading too much into Ibe’s online behaviour, have left messages of support and urged him to stay on at Anfield.
Ibe has struggled to hold down a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s first team in recent weeks.
The England Under-21 international has not started since Liverpool’s 2-1 extra-time defeat to West Ham United in an FA Cup fifth round replay on 9 February.
Ibe, who joined the club from Wycombe Wanderers' youth system, has had a chance to impress at Anfield this season, making 35 appearances across all competitions and scoring three goals.
