ENGLISH Premiership side West Ham has revealed that it will not be extending the loan deals of Super Eagles strikers Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike at the end of the current season.
Moses, 25, is currently on a season-long loan from London neighbours Chelsea, while Emenike, 28, is on loan from Turkish side Fernebahce. Emenike joined from United Arabs Emirates club Al-Ain in the January transfer window and although he has featured regularly of late, the club appears not to be impressed enough with him to offer the striker a permanent deal.
In addition to the two Nigerian strikers, West Ham will also not be offering a contract extension to Cameroonian midfielder whose deal with the club expires in the summer. Emenike will be sent back to Turkey, while Song will have to look for a new club and Moses will be returning to Stamford Bridge.
Moses enjoyed a productive start to life at Upton Park, starting 11 matches and scoring in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City. However, a hamstring injury in the goalless draw with Manchester United in December saw Moses miss six weeks of the season and he has not started in the Premier League since.
He was on the bench last weekend as the Hammers played a disappointing 2-2 draw with his former club, Crystal Palace. With West Ham not interested in keeping him on, Moses will hope that the newly named Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte will see him useful in his Blues’ revival plans.
Emenike who has scored two goals in nine appearances, both in the 5-1 FA Cup fifth-round victory over Blackburn Rovers, will have hope some luck will come his way before the season ends. It6 is believed that he is not even wanted at his parent coach Fernebahce due to a loss of form.
