West Ham set to offload Nigeria international following Martinez transfer

Nigerian international Emenike

West Ham United will not extend Emmanuel Emenike’s loan deal at the end of the season following the signing of Toni Martinez.

The Turkish newspaper Milliyet have reported that the Nigeria international has failed to impress after joining the Hammers on loan from Fenerbahce in January.

The daily newspaper goes onto say that West Ham have signed Martinez on a three-year deal for €3 million from Valencia.

Emenike has a total of two-goals in all competitions for West Ham since joining on a temporary move from Fenerbahce.

The Nigerian striker is yet to score a single goal in the Premier League and has lost his place in West Ham’s starting line-up following the return of Andy Carroll.

The Hammers have a buy-out option to sign Emenike at the end of the season but Slaven Bilic has remained coy on whether he will push the board to active the clause in his contract.
