Emenike Joins Super Eagles Striker At Las Palmas
Olympiacos striker Emmanuel Emenike has joined Spanish La Liga club Las Palmas on loan.
Emenike will be teaming up with compatriot and Super Eagles striker Oghenekaro Etebo at the Estadio Gran Canaria.
Emenike was a member of the Eagles Team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
He was snapped up by the Greek champions in July 2017 for €2.5 million from Fenerbahce. However, since his arrival at Karaiskakis Stadium, he has suffered various injuries which have limited his game time.
Las Palmas announced in a statement that Emenike arrives on loan to UD Las Palmas until June 30, 2018.
