West Ham have confirmed that Nigerian forward Emmanuel Emenike has joined the club on loan, until the end of the season.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world, because it’s everyone’s dream to play here,” he enthused.

The 28-year-old joined Fenerbache from Spartak Moscow in the summer of 2013, but the attacker was loaned out to Al Ain of the UAE last summer, for a fee of €3.5 million.

Upon returning to Turkey, the club have decided to ship him out again immediately, and West London will be his destination.

Emenike made his debut for the Nigerian national team in 2011, aged 23, but called quits on his international career in 2015.

West Ham host relegation candidates Aston Villa in midweek, as they aim to continue their push for European football next season.
