West Ham don’t believe they are any further forward in the pursuit of Emmanuel Emenike.
The club’s negotiators are being frustrated at every turn as they attempt to bring the Nigerian in on loan with an option for a permanent deal next season .
To coin an over-used cliche this one is going right down to the wire as Fenerbache play hide and seek with the Hammers over the possible switch.
We spoke with our top source tonight who was clearly irritated at the length of time and lack of regular contact involved with the Turkish club’s officers.
He said: “To put this is a nutshell we keep hearing different stories from Turkey and it’s probably best to say that we are now hopeful rather than expectant. They are very difficult negotiations but there is still time.”
The Irons are reported as having an agreement in place with the player but any progress on dealing with Fenerbache looks to be as tough as pulling teeth.
