Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim confirmed that West Ham have agreed to an £8.4 million release clause option for the Nigerian international striker.
Yildirim also claimed that the Hammers have also paid the Yellow Canaries £760,000 in loan fees until the end of the season.
The 28-year-old striker spent the first half of this season on loan at Al Ain scoring seven goal in 11 appearances.
Emenike struggleS at Fenerbahce last season scoring just five Super League under the command of ex manager Ismail Kartal.
Following the transfer we took to Twitter to see how the transfer went down with Fenerbahce fans.

Pretty happy with Emenike. Just got to get Lanzini tied down permanently and it'll be two incredible transfer windows under Bilic. #COYI

Great business from us this window. Adding Byram and Emenike has improved what was already our best ever squad (in my lifetime). #COYI

Not sure what to make of the Emenike signing to be honest. Should have just signed Austin when we had the chance.

Remember if you are not sure about Emenike, many had not heard of Payet, Sakho, Kouyate & Lanzini before they joined.

Think Emenike fits in to Bilic's style well, pace and powerful striker
