Out of favour Super Eagles and Celtic defender Efe Ambrose is currently courting interest from French Ligue 1 side Nice and newly promoted English Premier League side Brighton.
Ambrose’s loan spell with newly crowned champions of Scottish Championship side Hibernian will terminate at the end of the season, and the defender will return to his original owners Celtic in the summer.
However his deal with Celtic will run out in the summer as well, meaning he will be a free player in the summer. A condition which has alerted some top teams in Europe especially his performances for his loan side Hibs.
Although he is leaning towards staying at Hibs so as to stay close to his family, French side Nice have inquired about his availability from his representatives who has close links with teams in France.
The 28 year old almost joined Bastia in January, but the move broke down as Ambrose opt to remain in Scotland, where he is due for citizenship in few months time.
His agent who also arranged for him to move to Blackburn Rovers, a move which collapsed due to work permit issues has been proposed to newly promoted English Premier League side Brighton.
He was offered to the team last week, but they are yet to decide on making a move for him, leaving Hibs as the only team who have formally approached the defender over a move in the summer.
