West Ham sign Emenike on loan

Striker joins until end of the season

West Ham have complete the signing of Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike on loan from Fenerbahce for the rest of the season.

The club will then have the option of making the deal permanent once the loan period is complete.

The 28-year-old, who was top scorer when Nigeria won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, won 37 caps for his country before announcing his retirement from international football last October.

He played in Turkey and Russia while Hammers boss Slaven Bilic was managing other clubs in those leagues and now joins former international team-mate Victor Moses at Upton Park.

"I'm very, very happy and very, very excited that I'm here," he said.

"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."
