West Ham United striker Emmanuel Emenike is expected to return to Fenerbahce at the end of the season.
The Turkish sports paper Fotomac has reported that the Hammers are unwilling to match Fenerbahce’s valuation and have turned their attention towards other targets.
West Ham were reported to have had an €11 million buy-out clause option that they would have been forced to activate if Emenike made 10 Premier League appearances.
However, the Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has denied reports of a clause.
Speaking to Fanatik Bilic stated, “It is absurd we would never have agreed to such a clause and that the club have no obligation to sign him.”
Emenike spent the first half of the season on loan at Al Ain scoring seven times in 11 appearances.
