West Ham United Football Club have announced the arrival of Emmanuel Emenike on a short-term loan deal until the end of the season.
Slaven Bilic‘s men have had a solid season so far, but their strikers are lacking for goals, with Dimitri Payet providing most of the attacking threat throughout the campaign.
With Andy Carroll‘s fitness still a worry and other strikers failing to net consistently, Bilic has decided to bring in Emenike on a short-term loan deal from Turkish side Fenerbahce.
The 28-year-old has agreed to a six-month loan switch and has already spoken to the club’s website regarding the move.
“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 [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.”
