Emmanuel Emenike joins West Ham United on loan

West Ham confirm the signing of Emmanuel Emenike on loan from Fenerbahce until the end of the season.

West Ham United have confirmed the signing of striker Emmanuel Emenike on loan from Fenerbahce until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has spent the majority of the current campaign on loan at Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates, scoring seven goals in just 11 appearances for the club.

However, the Nigeria international will now spend the rest of the season with the Hammers, who have the option to make the move a permanent one at the end of the campaign.

"I'm very, very happy and very, very excited that I'm here. 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," he told West Ham TV.

"I've known [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 has made 37 appearances for Nigeria and was part of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations-winning squad in addition to playing at the 2014 World Cup.
