Southampton's Wanyama, Norwich's Hooper will succeed in England - Celtic's Ambrose

Celtic defender Efe Ambrose is confident that former teammates Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper will do very well in England.

Kenyan midfielder Wanyama has joined Southampton for £12.5million while striker Hooper has signed with Norwich City for around £5m and both arrive at their new clubs under plenty of pressure to perform.

Ambrose, who played with both players regularly last season, believes they are capable of re-producing their form with the Hoops in the English Premier League.

"They will both make it in the Premier League, it is a big challenge but it is a great chance for them to show them how good they are but I think they will make it to the very top," he told Sky Sports.

"They are good players, and we lost Thomas Rogne to Wigan too and they are all good players but Celtic is a team, not just individuals.

"These two have gone, but I believe the president and the manager are working hard to replace them and to bring players in that make us better, but as I said this is a team and we will work hard as a team."
