Birmingham City midfielder Darren Ambrose has completed his loan move to Greek side Apollon Smirnis until the end of the season.

Ambrose joined Birmingham from Crystal Palace in the summer of 2012 and has only made 10 appearances.

He has played once this season for Birmingham after being plagued by injury. His only game came in September when the Blues lost 3-0 to Burnley at Turf Moor.

Ambrose will be linking up with former Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez. The Greek side are currently 13th in the Greek Super League table.

This will be Ambrose's sixth different club since 2001 and he will hope to get more game time now that he has moved to Greece after a disappointing spell with Birmingham City.

Blues manager Lee Clark wished him well but thinks the experience will be good for him, reports The Birmingham Mail.

Clark said: "Darren hasn’t played a lot of football for us but he has trained the majority of the days, played most of the development games and behind closed doors games.

“He’s a talented footballer. For whatever reason when it has come to Birmingham, it hasn’t happened for him.

“He has found it more and more difficult. Maybe he has lost a bit of confidence.

“I think the fresh start for him and his family will prove productive and certainly me as a manager and us as a club wish him well.”
