West Ham United co-chairman David Gold is confident the club can reach a deal for Alex Song, but will not rush proceedings.

With less than a month left of the transfer window, the 78-year-old insists the club will not spend unwisely on ensuring the Barcelona midfielder arrives at Upton Park on a permanent basis.

“We enjoyed Alex Song’s contribution but these things are ongoing. We’re not panicking, we’re not going to do poor deals, we’re going to do sensible deals and I think by the time we kick off we should be in good shape,” Gold told the London Evening Standard.

Song is keen on returning to the Premier League and preferably a return to London, where he spent time with Arsenal and a successful loan spell at the Hammers last season.

Gold has hinted that a deal for Song could be one of two deals that look likely to be done before the summer transfer window shuts.

He added: “I would have thought [we will sign] at least two new players, not necessarily before we kick off but before the window closes.”

The Cameroon international made 28 league appearances for the Hammers last season.
