West Ham's Emmanuel Emenike looks dejected

In the winter West Ham United were looking for a new striker to help out the club. The Hammers’ strikers were struggling at times with injury problems. Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll all spent time out of the first-team picture with injury problems.

So the club moved to bring in Emmanuel Emenike on loan until the end of the season.

Emmanuel Emenike scores the fourth goal for West Ham

The powerful Nigerian striker was struggling for first-team football at Fenerbahce so had joined Al Ain of the United Arab Emirates on loan. However, he was after something more challenging, and headed to West Ham in the winter.

His time at the club was less than successful.

He scored twice against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup in what was his third game for the club. However, he failed to score again and these proved to be his only goals in 16 appearances at West Ham.

With that in mind West Ham made no attempt to bring him in permanently.

Now it is being reported that Emenike could be heading to former club Kardemir Karabukspor.

Sporx are one of many Turkish sources suggesting this is his next destination. He previously played at the club from 2009 to 2011, scoring 30 goals in 51 appearances.

West Ham fans will never have many fond memories of Emenike but he came in to do a job and helped them out in their hour of need.

Hopefully he can find success wherever he ends up next season.
