Celtic are believed to be showing plenty of interest in FC Ashdod defender Efe Ambrose.

The 23-year old, who has represented Nigeria on 14 occasions, has emerged as a £1.5million target for the Hoops according to SunSport.

Neil Lennon is looking for someone who can play as a holding midfielder in case Victor Wanyama leaves during the summer transfer window and the fact Ambrose can hold down centre-back as well as move into a more advanced role has caught the attention of the Parkhead manager.
