Emmanuel Emenike has the talent for his latest challenge at West Ham

Emmanuel Emenike has taken a circuitous route to the Premier League but he could make an impact at West Ham.

Emmanuel Emenike's winter move to West Ham is one that came out of left field, at least, for Nigerian football fans. But the 28-year-old striker's 2016 appears to be taking a cue from his 2015, which proved to be a year of surprises.

Pushed out of Fenerbahce given a loss of form and dwindling goal return, the forward surprised his countrymen by heading off to the Gulf club Al-Ain on loan for what appeared to be a big payday. It was not the move many expected, given his status as an elder statesman...

Top African transfer moves: Adebayor, Gervinho, Boussoufa, Erasmus

Alan Pardew feels Emmanuel Adebayor only needs a little love in order to rediscover his old form.

With sales of players from African clubs to the lucrative leagues of Europe, and now China too, becoming ever scarcer there were still a few deals involving the continent's stars in January. Here, we look at some of the best African moves of the transfer window.

Emmanuel Adebayor (Togo) -- Crystal Palace, free transfer

As their league form hits a rough patch, it did not take Palace manager Alan Pardew long to get the Togo striker back on the field for the first time since May. Adebayor came on as...

Nigeria must improve development of domestic players

Two great goals with connections to Nigeria were scored in the past week. Tottenham's Dele Alli cracked in a volley packing all the trappings of a serious contender for goal of the season in the Premier League.

In another continent, Chisom Chikatara also pulled a rabbit of his goalscoring hat with a stupendous volley, one of three goals he scored in a 20-minute spell as Nigeria's Super Eagles blitzed past neighbours Niger, 4-1, at the African Nations' Championship, a tournament for players who...

Cameroon's African Nations Cup hopes threatened by uncertainty

Cameroon will be looking to avoid any missteps in their quest for African Nations' Cup qualification.
Cameroon will be looking to avoid any missteps in their quest for African Nations' Cup qualification.

Time is beginning to run out if Cameroon are to appoint a new coach before their next matches in March which are qualifiers for the 2017 African Nations Cup.

It has always been a post fraught with political intrigue, but nevertheless it remains one of the top jobs in African football and there is never a shortage of prospective candidates.

Despite a shortlist made public in December and a whirl of speculation, there are now just two months left to get a man in place before back-to-back games...

New-look Nigerian Premier League bearing fruit for Nigeria at CHAN

Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh had every reason to smile following his team's 4-1 thrashing of Niger.
Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh had every reason to smile following his team's 4-1 thrashing of Niger.

Nigeria's Chisom Chikatara came on with less than 30 minutes of play left in the opening game of their African Nations Championship Group C campaign against neighbours Niger and proceeded to decimate the opposition with a hat trick in a 4-1 victory on Monday.

It wasn't just about the number of goals he scored -- indeed, it could have been at least twice the tally -- it was his overall play. His movement was timed to perfection, the technique was exquisite and the finishing was lethal.

Lionel Messi snub could be final straw for South Africa coach Mashaba

A revealing look at who voted for whom in this year's FIFA Ballon d'Or, which was won by Lionel Messi.

Ephraim Mashaba had been given a mandate to build a team for the future and theoretically still has time to do so in his job as coach of South Africa but a woeful start to the African Nations Cup qualifiers and series of recent foibles suggest his time is now running out.

Mashaba is a man with a penchant for swimming upstream -- dismissive of most of the mechanics of the modern game and seemingly revelling in an old school approach.

There is little appetite for convention but failure to vote for...
