"I've known Slaven Bilic (West Ham coach) for years. We've followed each other's careers and thank God we are here today and are here together."

Emenike was linked with EPL moves after 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

It was reported that he was in the radar of Chelsea and Liverpool FC, the energetic striker has not hidden his dream to play in the EPL and he has the attitude, power and speed to succeed there.
