English Championship outfit Derby County have announced their retained list following the conclusion of the 2018/2019 season.
The Rams have held a meeting with former Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose informing him that his contract will not be renewed.
Derby County’s decision not to reward the central defender with a new deal is not surprising as the season was unimpressive since he moved to the team in February.
The club had to part ways with Efe Ambrose to release some additional funds to bring in new players. They had to look at the average age of the squad and bring that down.
The defender made an exit from Hibernian earlier this year after triggering a clause in his contract which enabled him to leave early.
He also knocked back the offer of a new-and-improved three-year deal.
After initially failing to find a club in the January window, he eventually signed for Derby in February.
However, he failed to make a first-team appearance and was not offered a new deal by the English Championship club.
The Nigerian previously played for Celtic over the course of five seasons and has 51 caps for his country.
Ambrose has not played for the Super Eagles in the last two years.
