The Nigerians stuck together as Emenike settles into his new environment.

West Ham United will be aiming to keep up their fight for European qualification this weekend when they take on Southampton at St Mary's on Saturday evening.

Of course The Hammers have been dealt some good news on the injury front this week - with the return of the often damaged limbs of Andy Carroll to first-team training. The England international has suffered a series of major injuries during his time at Upton Park. His latest ailment however seemed to be more on the minor scale, as he returned to action today looking ready for the weekend.

The club will also be able to call upon Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike for the first time since his loan signing from Fenerbahce was completed.

He was eligible to face Aston Villa in the week but had only just returned from handling some final matters in Turkey and therefore was in no condition to feature.

He took to training as well today. The powerhouse would have been hoping to catch the eye of his new boss Slaven Bilic. He is also lucky to have a friend in the ranks. He has played with loanee Victor Moses on numerous occasions with the Nigerian national team and they seemed to stick together in this session - as Emenike tip-toes into life with the Hammers.
