Derby seemingly closing in on signing Efe Ambrose

Derby seemingly closing in on signing Efe Ambrose

Derby County managed to get the better of Hull City at Pride Park on Saturday in what was a dominant performance from Frank Lampard’s men. 

The Rams still find themselves sitting just outside of the play-offs on goal difference, as Bristol City secured yet another three points against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

However, it appears as if Lampard is closing in on a signing, as according to the Derby Telegraph, a deal looks to be close for central defender Efe Ambrose.

Interestingly, the Rams could soon complete the signing of Efe Ambrose, according to Lampard after Saturday’s 2-0 home victory over Hull City.

Here’s what the Derby boss had to say:

“We are talking, he is training with us. It is not done yet, it could be done soon,”

Luckily for the Rams, Ambrose is a free agent which means he can join a club outside a transfer window.

THE VERDICT:

Efe Ambrose has plenty of experience from his time in Scotland and on the international stage with Nigeria, so he could prove to be a valuable asset as the Rams chase down a play-off place.

The defender will provide healthy competition and cover at the back, with injuries possibly taking their toll.
