As the Transfer deadline strikes and the day comes to a close there are the classic major stories, such as how John Terry will not have his contract renewed.
However there are also the deals that go under the radar, such as Emmanuel Emenike’s loan move to West Ham.
Touted as a future star back in 2012 Emenike is well known to the football intelligentsia. Possessing a good goal scoring record everywhere he has been, and 37 Nigeria caps to match, Emenike’s powerful build and deceptive pace should fit in well to the premier league. This is certainly not a signing that should be ignored.
Naturally there are always the loan deals which occur with little result, Kim kallstrom is often used as a comical example however unfairly. (People often forget he sent Arsenal through to the FA cup final that ended their 9 year trophy drought) But hopefully Emenike will not be one of these.
He no doubt faces tough competition. With injury prone Andy Carroll firing once again along with Valencia and Sakho on the books opportunities may be scarce.
But with Zarate on his way out and Carroll notoriously struggling for fitness Emenike may prove to be an astute signing yet.
