West Ham Release African Trio Moses, Emenike, Song After Loan Spells

Nigerian stars Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike have been released by English Premier League side West Ham United after their loan deals expired at the end of the season.

The Boleyn Ground outfit confirmed the development on their website Tuesday.

Joining the Nigerian duo is former Arsenal defensive midfielder Alex Song who was recruited to East London in 2014 after a difficult first season at Spanish giants Barcelona.

Moses joined West Ham from Chelsea in September 2015 on a season-long loan, after spending the previous season on loan at Liverpool.

The former Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic winger made 21 appearances and scored just one goal for the Hammers which was in a 2-1 win away to Manchester City.

He netted just twice in 13 appearances for Slaven Bilic’s side, both goals coming in a 5-1 FA Cup win against Blackburn at Ewood Park.
