English League One (third division) side Plymouth Argyle are being linked with Nigeria international Efe Ambrose.
According to Plymouth Herald, it is believed the club turned their attention to Ambrose who plays for Scottish Premiership side Hibernian following the possible exit of defender Sonny Bradley.
Bradley announced on his Twitter account on Friday of his intention to reject the Plymouth’s offer of a new contract and find a new club for the forthcoming season.
Luton Town remain the most likely destination for Bradley, but his departure from Plymouth means manager Derek Adams will be looking to sign a new centre half.
Niall Canavan has already arrived, following his release by Rochdale, but with Ryan Edwards the only other centre back for Plymouth right now, it is an area that will need strengthening.
Ambrose, 29, joined Hibernian last summer from Scottish rivals Celtic, and he went on to make 45 appearances last season, scoring three goals.
He has a year remaining on his current contract with the Hibernian.
He was a member of the Super Eagles squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
