Fenerbahce chairman Aziz Yildirim has given a strong hint that Emmanuel Emenike’s loan move to West Ham will soon be sealed.
Yildirim has confirmed ex-Super Eagles striker Emenike is close to joining the Hammers after a loan fee was agreed.
West Ham boss Bilic had described progress as “complicated” this week but it now looks like the issue has been resolved.
“We’re about to loan [Emenike] to West Ham United,” The Mirror quotes Yildirim as saying on Saturday.
“They will give €1million to us for this agreement and they will have the option to purchase him for €11m. But the deal hasn’t been completed yet.”
Emenike has scored seven goals in 11 games on loan at UAE side Al Ain this season, a loan that had caused those complications in the deal.
West Ham are desperate for some strikers with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho injured and Mauro Zarate off to Fiorentina.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
