The West Ham United fans are gathered around the jukebox in The Transfer Tavern discussing a new arrival at the club.
The club have confirmed the news that they have signed Nigerian international Emmanuel Emenike on loan from Fenerbahce until the end of the season.
West Ham have been in the market for a new striker for most of the window and the news will no doubt please manager Slaven Bilic. Speaking about his delight at arriving at West Ham, Emenike told the club’s official website:
“I’m very, very happy and very, very excited that I’m here. 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.”
The West Ham fans in The Tavern are delighted with news of the deal and can’t wait to see the Nigerian turn out for the side.
