Emmanuel Emenike has said he is delighted to join ‘great club’ West Ham and can’t wait to play for the team.
Emenike officially completed his loan transfer to English Premier league club, West Ham after the London club paid a fee of £730,000 to sign the Nigerian striker until the end of the season.
West Ham will also have the option to sign him on a permanent deal from Fenerbahce for £8.1million.
Emenike revealed to West Ham TV he is delighted to be given the opportunity to finally work with Slaven Bilic after joining.
“I have always known West Ham as a great club. I have always been watching them. West Ham’s a great club and I am very, very happy and very, very excited that I am 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 have known each other for a long time. I’m happy to be here and happy to play for him.
“We have followed each other’s careers and thank God we are here today and we are here together. That is why I am here, to always be in the first XI, always try to make the fans happy and to make myself happy. I really hope it works out.
“The Premier League is the best in the world, it is everyone’s dream to come and play here. I am excited to be here.”
