Following Efe Ambrose tearing up his Hibernian contract, the defender doesn’t appear to be short of potential suitors.
Links to Premier League Cardiff City and last season’s Europa League runners-up Marseille emerged from the Scotsman before he self-willingly departed Easter Road.
The latest transfer rumour, as reported by the Edinburgh Evening News, is that Sheffield Wednesday are trying to tempt the Nigerian to Hillsborough. With the Owls now under the management of Steve Bruce, the former Manchester United defender is weighing up a move.
Wednesday currently sit 16th in the Championship. Despite being nine points clear of the relegation zone, they’re 11 behind Frank Lampard’s Derby County in the last promotion playoff place.
They have conceded the second most goals in the division (45), one less than Ipswich Town (46). Given the Tractor Boys sit bottom of the pile, this move makes sense.
No doubt newly-appointed Bruce is looking for more defensive solidity. Whether he believes free agent Ambrose is the man to do so, we shall wait and see.
He certainly impressed in Scotland’s top tier at Hibernian under Neil Lennon. Could he be about to test himself at a big club in England’s second division?
