A little bit of nostalgia and reminisce reveals that West Ham, used to have Nigerian duo at the club together with one of the most exciting foreign imports, that has ever graced the English Premier League.

The nostalgic drive takes us to the 2015/2016 season when a certain Emmanuel Emenike, Victor Moses and Dimitri Payet formed parts of West Ham's attack under Slaven Billic.

Victor Moses, was on his several loan deals whilst as a Chelsea football club player before he would eventually cement his place with the Blues.

Moses joined West Ham, on loan for the entirety of the 2015-2016 season after a successful loan spell with Stoke City. He would go on to be a key man, and player for West Ham in that Premier League season.

Dimitri Payet, was an attacking creative midfielder signed from Marseille who would then go on to spend four years in the Premier League, and creating a cult hero figure amongst faithful Hammers fans.

For those opportuned to watch him: His technical and set pieces abilities was one of the very best, during his time with the London club in the Premier League.

Finally for former Nigerian international, Emmanuel Emenike, he joined the Hammers in that season on a short term deal with an option to make it permanent.

Emenike joined West Ham on a half season deal from Fernabahce, which saw him score just once in a FA Cup rout of Blackburn Rovers, and his deal with the Hammers was never made permanent after it expired.
