Latest transfer news from England indicate that Derby County are set to win the race to land out-of-favour Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose.

A host of Championship clubs have been keen on the 30-year-old – who is a free agent, having exercised a clause in his contract at Hibernian to leave last month.

Sheffield Wednesday were thought to be leading the chase to sign the Nigerian defender, who is able to play at centre-back or right-back.

Now Frank Lampard has made his move and is set to hand Ambrose a short-term deal which could boost the Rams’ promotion push.
