Emenike deal is done says young Jack

EmenikeEmanuelle Emenike’s loan move to West Ham has apparently been completed within the last few minutes..

According to David Sullivan’s teenage son Jack he is now on board as our winter loan signing after a complicated series of negotiations.

Sullivan jnr tweeted: EMENIKE loan is complete for the rest of the season… At last!

His club Fenerbahce have said publicly that we have an option to buy at £8 million which will take some thought from the Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.

Our own top source told us this evening: “The option is there but we are looking at a fourth striker although if he turns out to be another Sakho that would be superb.

“We have plenty of time to take a look at him and make up our minds.”

It means that David Sullivan has again found his way through a set of complicated negotiations and that Nikica Jelavic  will be on his way to China.

Sullivan was always quietly confident of completing the deal but sources close to the boardroom explained that there were  other options with Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher very much the “safety net” back up possibility.

  1. Well, I guess the answer to whether this was all worth it will come from measuring his contribution against Zarate and Jelivac because that’s the space he is filling.
    One thing is certain, with Sakho, Carroll and Lanzini all back any time and Valencia already there, he will have to be good to break into the first team, eecially as first choice

  2. To the tune of “La Bamba” (Richie Valens / Los Lobos):


    (Original words in brackets)

    “EMMANUEL EMENIKE! (Para bailar La Bamba!)
    EMMANUEL EMENIKE! (Para bailar La Bamba!)
    HE PLAYS FOR WEST HAM, (Se necessita)
    CAME FROM FENERBAHÇE! (Una poca de gracia)

    HE CAME FROM FENERBAHÇE! (Una poca de gracia)
    EMMANUEL, EMMANUEL EMENIKE! (Para mi, para ti, ay arriba, ay arriba)

    EM-MAN-U-EL, EM-MAN-U-EL. (Por ti sere, por ti sere)

    EM-EN-IKE, (Bam-ba, Bamba,)
    EM-EN-IKE! (Bam-ba, Bamba!)
    EM-EN-IKE! (Bam-ba, Bamba!)”


  3. I wish Jelavic and Zarate all the best but I am looking forward to seeing this guy play. I also believe we should let JOB leave. I am beginning to have serious doubts too about Song, which is a real shame. My best team with everyone fit is Adrian, Tomkins, Reid, Ogbanna, Cresswell, Kouyate, Obiang or Noble, Valencia, Payet, Lanzini and Sakho with subs Antonio, Byran, Moses, Emmenike, Song, Collins. Definitely the best squad we have ever assembled. Thank you the two Davids and I really hope Bilic delivers top 6 at least to us this season.

  4. Iwould find it very hard to leave Antonio out.
