Hibernian’s Nigerian defender Efe Ambrose has described new signing as a welcome addition after his side announced the signing of free agent Miquel.
Nelom on an initial one-year deal. The 27-year-old left-back became a regular at Feyenoord after moving from Excelsior in 2011, winning the KNVB
Cup in 2015-16 and the Eredivisie in 2016-17.
However, a lack of first-team opportunities saw the Dutchman – capped twice by the Netherlands in 2013 – head to Sparta Rotterdam on loan last
In what is Nelom’s first spell away from the Netherlands, the defender said he is looking forward to working under manager Neil Lennon in
Edinburgh, and in a chat with footballlive.ng, Ambrose says he believes Nelom can add quality to the team.
“It feels great. I am happy he is here and to have the opportunity to start at Hibernian,” Nelom told the club’s website.
“My first impression of the player is that he is very enthusiastic and I know a bit about him. I’m sure he will be a good player for us.
Nelom will wear the No 18 shirt for the side.
