Emenike is out of favour with Turkish side Fenerbahce and Hull who are fighting relegation, are hopeful of getting Emenike to boost their chances.

HULL CITY have enquired about a move for Fenerbahce’s former West Ham striker Emmanuel Emenike to boost their survival hopes.

However, Fener boss Dick Advocaat is believed to be only ready to sanction a permanent deal for the 29-year-old, according to Turkish-Football.com.

The forward has been in impressive form this season, scoring seven and grabbing four assists, but a fall out with Advocaat means he is expected to leave.

Emenike is no stranger to the Premier League following his loan spell with the Hammers last season. He failed to hit top gear during his time with Slaven Bilic’s men, hitting the net just four times in 19 matches.

After loaning him out last season, the club are reluctant to do it again and want him to leave permanently.

The experienced front man also has experience of top tier football in Russia after banging in 21 goals in 42 appearances for Spartak Moscow.
