West Ham have completed the signing of Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike on loan until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has moved to the Boleyn Ground from Fenerbahce and the Hammers have an option to make the move permanent in the summer.

Capped 37 times by his country, Emenike told the club’s website: "I'm very, very happy and very, very excited that I'm here.”

"I have always known West Ham as a great club. I've always been watching them. West Ham's a great club and I'm happy to be here.

"I've known him [Slaven Bilic] for years. When he was at Lokomotiv Moscow, I was at Spartak Moscow, then he came to Besiktas and I was in Fenerbahce, so we've known each other for a long time. I'm happy to be here and happy to play for him.

"We've followed each other's careers and thank God we are here today and we are here together."
