EFE AMBROSE SIGNS TWO-YEAR DEAL WITH HIBERNIAN

By: Hibernian Media on 08 Jun, 2017 17:00

Efe Ambrose’s deal to join Hibernian has now been formally completed.

The Nigerian international, 28, has joined the Club on a two-year deal following a successful short-term loan from Celtic towards the end of the 2016/17 season, where he played twelve times.

The defender, who can operate at centre-back and right-back, required an endorsement from the Scottish Football Association and a Visa prior to his deal being wholly ratified, and the Club are delighted that this has been achieved.

Hibernian Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said of the deal: “Efe is a player of real quality, and one who excited the fans when he arrived on a short-term deal. The Club as a whole are delighted to be bringing in a player with his quality and experience.

“Neil was really keen to get Efe over the line, and we’re delighted to have been able to achieve that.

“Bringing in a player like Efe is a coup and the supporters played their part. We now have over 11,300 season ticket holders, this is the sort of backing that helps us to bring in players with his quality as we prepare for the season ahead.”

Efe joins Simon Murray and Danny Swanson as signings made by Neil Lennon as he prepares his squad for the forthcoming Ladbrokes Premiership season.
