Rumour Mill Update-Oh Bhoy, Efe Ambrose!

The Clarets are looking to bring 25-year-old Celtic defender, Efe Ambrose to Turf Moor if media reports in the Mail on Sunday are true. He was part of the Nigeria team that reached the last 16 of the World Cup after which it seems clubs began to take note.

Leicester and Crystal Palace were both linked with Ambrose earlier in the summer but their interest in the 6"3 defender now appears to have cooled according to the Mail, leaving the door open for the Clarets to step in and make an enquiry.

Ambrose joined Scottish Premier League club, Celtic from Israeli Premier League club FC Ashdod on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2012, signing a three-year contract. He started his professional career at his hometown club of Kaduna United in Nigeria in 2006. Two years later, he was on loan at Bayelsa United for the 2008-09 season but remained with Kaduna United after helping them win promotion before joining FC Ashdod in June 2010. Full name, Efetobore Ambrose Emuobo and thankfully affectionately known as 'Efe` he is quite versatile in the back four able to play both at right back and centre back so if the rumours are true he would give Sean Dyche options in defence.

Ye can have him, i'll pay the taxi fare. He's an utter disaster when up against any opposition with talent.
