According to the forward, he joined because of the club’s good reputation.

Emenike joined the club on a six-month loan deal from Greek club, Olympiacos, on transfer deadline day.

The ex-Super Eagles forward was the second Nigerian to join Las Palmas during the January transfer window following the arrival of Oghenekaro Etebo from Portuguese club, CD Feirense.

He also joined Brown Ideye and Isaac Success who joined Malaga from Tianjin TEDA and Watford respectively.

Emenike told the club’s official website, “I came to this club because I heard a lot about Las Palmas, and I know how the team play.

“I have not played for a while because of an injury, but now I feel good.

“It is a very demanding league, but I trust in myself and I want to bring out the best in me to Las Palmas.

“I came to this team because I knew him and they spoke to me very well about the club.

“I have many experiences in football, but I always adapt to what the coach asks.

“I am a forward, I feel comfortable in that position, but it could vary according to the needs of the team.

“I know goals will come, I do not want to say an exact number. ”
