West Ham completed the signing of Fenerbahce forward Emmanuel Eminike on a loan deal last night.
The Nigerian centre forward joins the hammers after previously working with Slaven Bilic during his time in Russia and Turkey, and now joins up with him again at Upton Park.
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.
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.
Eminike, who has made 37 appearances for Nigeria, will have the option to make the loan deal a permanent one in the summer, should this spell go well.
