West Ham United fail to secure transfer of 6ft 1 combative midfielder

SongWest Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been drowning their sorrows after back-to-back Premier League defeats, and now there is more bad news courtesy of the Daily Mirror.

The Hammers have failed in their efforts to sign Alex Song on a permanent transfer, with the Cameroon international having returned to Barcelona after a season long loan at Upton Park.

Song impressed during his loan spell last season, but the Hammers have been unable to strike a deal with the Catalan giants.

Barcelona are still keen to move him on however, with the same publication reporting that Song is training alone until he finds himself a new club.

Song managed 28 games for the Hammers last season, and now it remains to be seen as to whether the club can come up with a suitable financial packaged before the close of the window in just five days time.

Our resident Hammers fans feel this is a big blow to the side, and feel Song’s combative style of play is exactly what the club needs this season!

West Ham fans, how much would you be happy to see the club pay to sign Alex Song on a permanent deal? Let us know your thoughts below!
