London - Emmanuel Emenike has expressed his excitement to
complete a loan move to West Ham United where he will be teaming up with
compatriot Victor Moses.
Both players were a great combination for the Super Eagles
winning the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013, where Emenike finished top scorer
with four goals.
Emenike and Moses are now expected to bring their national
team experience together to help West Ham find the goals.
"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," Emenike told West Ham TV.

Emenike began his career with Delta Force in Nigeria before
moving to South Africa with Mpumalanga Black Aces and Cape Town.
In 2009, he moved to Turkish football with second division
Karabukspor, where his 16 goals helped the side to promotion.
He then scored 14 goals in the top flight with Karabukspor
before a brief stay at Fenerbahce in 2011 was followed by a switch to Russian
Premier League side Spartak Moscow where he hit 24 goals in 51 games.
A return to Fenerbahce in 2013 led to the league title in
2014. Emenike was loaned to Al-Ain in the UAE last year, netting seven goals in
just eleven appearances.For
