AFSTZ: West Ham want Song return
West Ham United will look to bring Alex Song back to Upton Park on a permanent basis next season.
David Sullivan, co-chairman of the Hammers is hopeful the club can agree a permanent deal, with the 27-year-old also being chased by Chelsea, Southampton, Liverpool and Tottenham.
The former Arsenal man was prolific during West Ham’s early season form, which dipped after Christmas. But no formal bid has yet been made.
Sullivan told the club’s official website: “I can assure you we have not given up on Alex Song yet,
“We are very thin on the ground with midfielders. You do get injuries and you need back-up. We have got Europe and other games that we want to win.
“There was not enough competition for places last season and this year we don’t want the same again.”
New manager Slaven Bilic may have a say on whether the Cameroon international returns to the club.
The exact fee has not been given, with Song having a year remaining on his contract.
