Emmanuel Emenike will not be joining West Ham on permanent basis after he failed the Hammers £8.3m audition, according to reports.
The 29-year-old joined the premier league side on loan in January after manager Slaven Bilić convinced the management to pay parent club Fenerbache £760,000 for his services.
However, despite the struggles of striking duo Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll with injuries Emenike failed to cease the opportunity as he only contributed two goals in 16 appearances in all competitions.
This made the decision easy for the club to allow him return to Turkey and the Hammers are already planning for next season with a £31m bid for Lyon’s forward Alexandre Lacazette which was turned down but are expected to go back with an improved bid.
Fenerbache currently have Former Arsenal forward Robin van Persie and Portuguese Nani in their ranks and may find it difficult to accommodate Emenike who they had hoped to sell because of his torrid relationship with the fans.
The jury is still out on Emenike who retired from international football in October 2015, after 37 caps and 9 goals for Nigeria.
