West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has suggested in The London Evening Standard that Alex Song, Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike will be given chances to prove themselves between now and the end of the season.
According to a recent media report, defensive midfielder Song, winger Moses and striker Emenike all will leave West Ham at the end of the season.
Song and Moses joined the Hammers on season-long loan deals from Barcelona and Chelsea respectively in the summer of 2015.
Emenike switched from Turkish club Fenerbahce in the January transfer window and is scheduled to remain on loan at the Boleyn Ground until the end of the season.
According to Sky Sports, West Ham will not make the loan signings of the trio permanent in the summer.
Bilic has denied the speculation, and has suggested that all three players will be given chances to show what they are capable of in the final weeks of the 2015-16 campaign.
“I have read this week that our three loan players, Alex Song, Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike, are not going to be retained at the end of this season,” the West Ham boss wrote in The London Evening Standard. “This is not true. It is just speculation.
“I will be counting on these players for these final few games if they are picked and all still have a chance to stay with us next season.
West Ham are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment and have a chance of finishing in the top four.
