    Efe Ambrose has told Nigerian media he has signed a short-term deal with Derby County.

    The former Hibs and Celtic defender has been on the hunt for a new club after leaving Easter Road in January.

    Rams boss Frank Lampard confirmed he was impressed with Ambrose and a leaked picture appears to confirm it's a done deal.

    Ambrose described the move to the Championship club as an honour and a privilege.

    EFE AMBROSE is set to leave Derby County.

    The former Hibs and Celtic star moved to the English Championship outfit in February but failed to feature in the top team.

    The 30-year-old, who was offered an improved three-year deal at the Hibees, invoked a clause in his contract that allowed him to depart Easter Road earlier this year.

    However, he has failed to kick a ball since and Frank Lampard has decided against offering him a new deal.

    Free agent Efe Ambrose has opened the door for a sensational return to Scottish football.

    The former Celtic and Hibs defender is on the lookout for a new club having left Derby in the summer.


    The 30-year-old has already turned down a number of lucrative offers because it wasn’t right for him and his family.

    But he revealed a return to Scotland is something that would have an appeal.

    Ambrose said: “I would never say never about the possibility of coming back to Scottish football.

    “It is a great place to play football and I feel the Scottish league is growing and getting better.


    “The standing and reputation of the league is growing and there is a real profile to it with the likes of Neil Lennon and Steven Gerrard now at Celtic and Rangers.

    I have had some great times in Scotland. My times there, with Celtic and Hibs, were amongst the best of my career and if there was interest there then it is something I would definitely consider.”

    Ambrose has also insisted his next move is not just about money.

    He said: “I have had some offers. I had a big-money offer from Turkey that would have seen me earn more than I did at Celtic but it just didn’t feel right.


    “I want a club to make sure the move is right for my family and for me at this stage in my career.”

    The centre-half is currently back in Nigeria but has been keeping himself fit by turning out for his local side, Narayi Celtic Kaduna, who were formed after his own spell at Parkhead.

    Ambrose said: “I have been training every day with my local team back in Nigeria and playing in friendly games.

    “So when I get my next move sorted, I will be ready to hit the ground running and to be able to get up to speed very quickly. That was the problem when I went to Derby last season.”

    Efe Ambrose can be summed up by when he forgot his passport for a European away game.

    He’s a legend and we’d be lucky to have him.
