Emmanuel Emenike done with Super Eagles

Fenerbache striker Emmanuel Emenike has completed a loan move to join West Ham.

The Nigerian forward will be with West Ham for the remainder of the season, and could join permanently.

Emenike was previously on loan at Al Ain, where he impressed, scoring nine goals in 15 appearances.

“I’m very, very happy and very, very excited that I’m here,” Emenike told the club’s official website.

“I have always known West Ham as a great club. I’ve always been watching them. West Ham’s a great club and I’m happy to be here.

“I’ve known him [Slaven Bilic] for years. When he was at Lokomotiv Moscow, I was at Spartak Moscow, then he came to Besiktas and I was in Fenerbahce, so we’ve known each other for a long time. I’m happy to be here and happy to play for him.

“We’ve followed each other’s careers and thank God we are here today and we are here together.”

Emenike scored regularly for Karabukspor and Spartak Moscow before his move to Fener for a second time in mid-2013.

Two years earlier, he had joined the club but was sold due to a match-fixing scandal.

Emenike scored 12 league goals in his first season at Fenerbahce but struggled in 2014-15, leading to his loan moves.
