Reports from Turkey over the last week have suggested El Jaish had asked the owners of the Qatari Crown Prince Cup champions to sign the former Nigeria international.
The Qatari side have since denied the reports however, with club chief Ismail Ahmad stating categorically that they have to plans to bring Emenike to the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium.
“El Jaish management did not enter negotiations with Emmanuel and all rumours are incorrect,” Ahmad told the club’s official website
“El Jaish currently has four high-level professional players including Lucas Mendes, Abdelrazzaq Hamedallah, Sardor Rashidov and Romario. The club management is committed to their contracts and has no intention to replace any of them during the new season” he added.
Emenike spent the latter part of the last season on loan at English Premier League side, West Ham, but the London club refused to exercise the option of taking him permanently and it also appears his future at Fenerbahce is all but over.
It now remains unclear where he will play his club football next season.
