Ambrose Set To Dump Hibernian For Cardiff City

Nigeria defender Efe Ambrose is set to leave Hibernian for free this month, according to the Scottish Sun.

Ambrose has rejected new terms to extend his stay beyond the expiry of his present contract in the summer and could now activate a release clause allowing him to leave for nothing from January 1.

Ambrose has been a mainstay in Neil Lennon’s backline since he joined Hibs from Celtic initially on loan in January 2017 before signing a two-year deal.

English Premier League side, Cardiff City are said to be interested in strengthening their defence with the former Celtic centre-back and are monitoring the situation.

The 30-year-old was a target for Turkish outfit Trabzonspor in the summer.

Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City – three points clear of the English Premier League relegation zone – are said to have shown an interest in the stopper in recent months.

Ambrose was a key player for the Easter Road side last season, making 45 appearances as Neil Lennon’s men finished fourth in the Scottish Premiership.

Ambrose’s departure would cap a miserable few days for Hibs gaffer Lennon, who watched his side lose the Edinburgh derby to Hearts thanks to Olly Lee’s winner.

    where is Tyrone Ebuehi? I hope NFF has not abandoned him after his injury? I believe what was done to Carl Ikeme should also be done to Ebuehi . Happy new year and more success to Super Eagles in 2019.

    • Tyrone shoukd be back in training next month (February 2019). The NFF have not forgotten him and the coach (Rohr) had sent trainers to work with him.

      He works be for to play in the match against the Seychelles
