There will be no Hibs reunion party for Efe Ambrose, with a report claiming that a return to Easter Road is off the table (Daily Record).

The Nigerian has been linked with another move to Leith whilst St Johnstone are another side reportedly interested in the former Celtic defender. He’s been without a club since leaving Derby County in the summer.

His next destination won’t be Leith though reportedly.

Hibs aren’t interested in an Ambrose return

The report says that Hibs have no plans to sign up Ambrose once more. He first arrived at Easter Road in 2016 on loan when Hibs were under Neil Lennon’s stewardship.


In that summer he penned a two-year deal with the Hibees. He would go on to make over 80 appearances in Edinburgh green, making himself a popular figure amongst fans.

Ambrose’s Derby move was a disaster though. He failed to make an appearance for the Rams after leaving Leith. This news could be music to Tommy Wright’s ears, as the St Johnstone boss hasn’t ruled out an Ambrose move.

It certainly seems as if a return to Leith for Ambrose is unlikely at this stage.
