Born in London,[3] Emmanuel was a schoolboy at West Ham before joining the youth setup at Ipswich.[4]

After progressing through the ranks at Ipswich Town, Emmanuel was called up by Manager Mick McCarthy for the first team on the pre-season tour of Ireland.[5] After being given a number 29 shirt ahead of the new season,[6] Emmanuel signed a professional contract at the club in August 2015,[7] and made his competitive Ipswich debut against Brentford on 8 August 2015 in the first match of the 2015–16 season, in which he set up a goal for Kévin Bru in a 2–2 draw.[8] He then had a handful of first team appearances throughout August before losing his first team place soon after.[9] After his loan spell at Crawley Town came to an end, it wasn't until on 29 April 2016 when he made another appearance for the side, in a 3–2 win over MK Dons.[10]

In the 2016–17 season, Emmanuel started the season on the substitutes bench and did not make his first appearance of the season until 24 September 2016 in a 1–0 loss to Leeds United.[11] However, he appeared in several matches before being demoted to the substitutes bench after Adam Webster, who recovered from his injury.[12] He then signed a two-year contract with the club, keeping him until 2019.[13] Towards the end of the 2016–17 season, Emmanuel then began playing in the right-midfield position.[14] By the end of the 2016–17 season, Emmanuel made the total of 17 appearances in all competitions.

Crawley Town (loan)[edit]

To gain first team experience,[15] Emmanuel joined Crawley Town on loan on 26 November 2015,[16] where he made his debut for the club in a 3–1 loss against Carlisle United three days later.[17] He returned to Ipswich on 3 January 2016.[18]

Rotherham United (loan)[edit]

Emmanuel joined Rotherham United on a season-long loan deal on 13 July 2017.[19] He made his Rotherham United debut, starting the match and playing the full 90 minutes, in a 2–0 loss against Fleetwood Town in the opening game of the season.[20] He went on to make 31 league appearances for Rotherham as the club earnt promotion to the EFL Championship, and was voted the club's young player of the year.[21]

Shrewsbury Town (loan)[edit]

In August 2018 Emmanuel joined Shrewsbury Town on loan for the 2018–19 season.[22] He made 14 league appearances for the Shrews before returning to Ipswich on 18 January 2019, after being recalled from his loan spell.[23]

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

On 2 September 2019, Emmanuel joined Bolton Wanderers on a contract until the end of the season, following his release from Ipswich Town a few hours earlier.[24] He made his debut on 14 September, starting against Rotherham United in a 6–1 defeat.[25]

Personal life[edit]

Emmanuel is of Nigerian descent.[4] Growing up in Harlow, Essex, Emmanuel supported Arsenal and was raised as a Christian, crediting it for force in his life.[26] Emmanuel revealed that he used to play rugby when he was young and was even offered a trial at Saracens but made it clear he wanted to be a footballer and wouldn't consider rugby as an alternative.[4]
