Efe Ambrose latest as Frank Lampard gives update on Derby County target

Derby County are close to the signing of defender Efe Ambrose, manager Frank Lampard confirmed last night.

“It should be done in a day or so,” said Lampard after the Rams’ 1-1 draw against Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Derby are just waiting on paperwork and clearance for Ambrose, who is a non-EU player.

The 30-year-old Nigerian international was quoted by SCORENigeria saying: “I signed a short-term deal that runs till the summer. I am delighted to join this ambitious club, I am honoured and it is a privilege to play under a legend like Frank Lampard.”
