It is no longer news that Fenerbache striker, Emmanuel Emenike has completed a loan move to English Premier League side, West Ham United.
The former Super Eagles striker moved to The Hammers in a loan deal believed to be in the region of £750,000, with an option of an £8.1 million permanent deal.
In his reaction to the loan move, the 28-year-old forward expressed his appreciation to the club’s management and vowed to put in his best on the pitch to help his new side do well in the league.
He told africanfootball.com: “Something bigger is expected from me, both from my fans, West Ham fans and English football fans as a whole, I am aware of the big responsibility before the move and I will be glad to make great impact in the league,
“As for me, I think this is the best time for me to play in the EPL, there had been lots of speculations linking me to a possible move to England in the last four years but here I am now.
“It is a thrilling feeling, a fulfilled dream and I am ready to prove my commitment and confidence on the pitch.”
The CAF African Cup of Nations winner added: “I believe this is God’s time for me to play in England, so I have no regret over the clubs I had signed and played for in the past.
“I always believe I still have something great in me to prove I am still a better player for a respectable and great club like West Ham.
“I have had EPL links since I was in Russia, my brothers got calls from some people over a link to a top club in London to be precise, but I wasn’t ready then because I was then learning and trying to improve my game.
“I know the challenges in scoring against some good defenders in England, it’s something you have to quickly adapt to and make instant impact.
“I want to justify my move and hope to light the league with goals.”
