Nigeria defender Efe Ambrose is set to link up with English Championship club Derby County on a free transfer, reports Completesports.com
A number of Championship clubs according to TEAMtalk.com have expressed interest in the former Celtic defender who is a free agent, having exercised a clause in his contract at Hibernian to leave last month.
Sheffield Wednesday were thought to be leading the chase to sign the 30-year-old versatile defender who is able to play at centre-back or right-back.
Middlesbrough and Bolton Wanderers were also among Ambrose’s suitors, but the website can reveal the versatile defender has opted for a move to Pride Park.
That will see him play under Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and help boost the Rams’ promotion push.
Ambrose who has been capped 51 times and scored four times has previously featured for Celtic and Isreali club, Ashdod.
