Irons hit snag on Emenike loan deal


EminWest Ham negotiators are still battling to put a deal to a loan deal together for Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike.

The club has been trying to get a deal sorted out all week but admitted to ClaretandHugh this evening they are hitting some snags with his club Fenerbache.

The player is currently on loan at Al Ain and the Hammers need to work out a deal with the Turkish outfit for the rest of the season.

However, a source admitted to us this evening: “We are unable to get any answers from his club but we will keep trying to make it happen.”

Emineke has a controversial background as detailed in a story on this site under the headline ‘Emeneke’s controversial baggage’ but the club are unfazed by his previous problems.

We were told that if they could get the loan done they would and then see how things go before triggering any permanent arrangement at the end of the season should they be in a position to do so.

    The outfit he is on loan to must want him gone first,then we have to agree terms with them
    Then we have to agree terms with him,then we need a work permit and get international clearance,
    No wonder Jelavic is still here and probably leading our forwards tomorrow,
    But Zarate would not have played there any way
    Let’s get some one in as soon as poss who ever it is as long as they have presence agility and scores goals and does not keep getting injured

    Anyone who can play for the majority of the season will be a most welcome change. please someone a bit robust not another porcelein so called tough guy. how many more?

    Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be? Seems like a lot of baggage.

  • ClaretDanBlue says:

    Hoping this is another Sak (7 in first 7 games or the like wasn’t it?) …
    But fear it may be more like a Ballotelli – trouble & strife
    But agree with Mooro – need reliability and heart for this long run in – so I’d welcome him here to get us some extra goals #COYI

    The Yilmaz story has surfaced again.

    • aykay says:

      One thing yilmaz has proved in turkey is he can get goals having scored 30 in each of the last 2 seasons , if we could get him and he is half as sucessful as he was there we will have some striker on our hands ….fingers crossed COYI ! ⚒⚒⚒

  • sweetfannyadams says:

    I wouldn’t touch him with a bargepole. There’s too much smoke wherever he goes for there to be no fire. He’ll probably be disruptive and a pain
