Out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Alex Song arrived London yesterday to finalise a season-long loan move to West Ham, Goal understands.
The former Arsenal midfielder will hold talks with Hammers officials before undergoing a medical today ahead of a move that will see him return to the Premier League after a two-year absence.
Song is expected to replace Mohamed Diame at Upton Park, with both Hull City and Everton weighing up a possible move for the Senegal international.
West Ham appear to have seen off competition for Song’s signature from Galatasaray, who wanted to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal.
Song joined Barcelona from Arsenal in a £15 million deal in the summer of 2012 but has failed to establish himself as a regular first-team starter in either midfield or defence at Camp Nou.
West Ham have already recruited Enner Valencia, Mauro Zarate, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho and Diego Poyet this summer.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
