Emenike completes Olympiacos move

Emmanuel Emenike

Former Nigeria international, Emmanuel Emenike, has finalised his move from Fenerbahce to Olympiacos.

The powerful forward successfully underwent a medical on Tuesday in Athens, Greece, with the deal reported to be worth around €2 million.

It was gathered that the contract will be for two years with an option for an additional one year.

Expectations have reached fever pitch as Greece awaits the arrival of the 30-year-old.

Emenike spent four torrid years in the Turkish capital after re-joining them for the second time from Spartak Moscow.

He was at the receiving end of series of racial abuses on the pitch which somewhat affected his performance.

Emenike managed just four goals last season and 25 in 91 games throughout his time with Fenerbahce.

The Nigerian also spent time on loan at West Ham and played for the club in the second half of the 2015-2016 season, although failed to net a league goal in 13 Premier League appearances.

He thus becomes the fifth Nigerian to play for The Reds, joining an elite class which includes Rashidi Yekini, Haruna Babangida, Michael Olaitan and most recently Brown Ideye.
