After his failure to secure a move to English championship side, Blackburn Rover fell through, the career of former Nigeria defender Efe Ambrose looks to be on the rise again with Hibernian hoping to make his loan deal permanent.
Since the former Kaduna United player joined Scottish championship side, Hibernian FC on loan from Scottish premier league champions, Celtic FC his career has resurrected.
After superlative performances for Hibernian which earned him a player of the month award for April, the club has concluded arrangements to sign Ambrose permanently from Celtic in the summer when his contract will come to ends.
According to Hibs manager Neil Lennon: “He’s not our player, but if we get an opportunity to sit down with him next week and see what his plans are, then it’s something we will pursue. Obviously we’d have to speak to Efe, his representatives and Celtic as well.
“It’s been a very good move personally for him and also for us. He’s back playing and showing the country what he’s capable of, the quality of player he is.
“He loves playing football and he’s playing big games again. He’s a great kid to have around the place he’s a joy to work with,” Lennon stated.
Ambrose was out of action for more than six months after he fell out with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.
