Celtic outcast Efe Ambrose has spoken out about reports linking him with a move to French side Bastia, but remained coy on speculations about a move to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

Ambrose has been severally linked with an exit from Celtic this January due to his failure to force his ways into the plans of coach Brendan Rodgers.

However the 28 year old who is due for Scottish citizenship in July says reports of an imminent move to Bastia is way off the mark.

” Am not close to joining any team yet. I read the reports about a pre contract with Bastia, same way have read reports about contract with other teams. I am in the final six months of my contract, which I believe is making talks about an exist louder than expected”, Ambrose told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” Regarding Blackburn Rovers, they are a traditional team with a rich culture and proud history, plus a very good manager in Owen Coyle, like I said earlier am not close to an exit from Celtic yet but we will see what can be worked out in the coming days”.
