Photos: Emmanuel Emenike making plenty of friends in West Ham training

Upton Park

The new West Ham signing is receiving attention galore in training.

The cameras at West Ham United's training ground were fully focused on Emmanuel Emenike on Thursday morning.

Indeed, it seems many want the 28-year-old Nigerian to be a big hit at Upton Park and, considering his potential, he could certainly please the well wishers.

Emenike hasn't hit the ground running just yet but a few boxes could be ticked if he starts to score goals for the Hammers.

With Andy Carroll's injury record and Nikica Jelavic's failure to make an impact so far at West Ham, Emenike could yet play a vital role in West Ham's season.

And he's already been making plenty of friends in West Ham training, being all smiles for the cameras on Thursday.

Slaven Bilic looked delighted to see the striker and they appear to already have a good relationship. Fellow Nigerian Victor Moses, meanwhile, spent a lot of time with Emenike on the practice pitch.

Here's the best of the images as the 28-year-old trained on Thursday:
