Bilic confirms Song moves

SongySlaven Bilic has confirmed that the Hammers want to sign Alex Song on a permanent deal – as revealed by ClaretandHugh on Wednesday.

The Irons boss – commenting on the ‘confused’ position declared: “He’s a little bit injured. He did really well last year and I would like him to stay with us.”

Usually Bilic makes a point of refusing to comment on player movements but broke his rule to give and update on the situation.

He said: “‘Although I said I’m not going to discuss players from other teams, he is somewhere in between.”

ClaretandHugh had revealed that the club were ready to swoop on the Barcelona midfielder towards the end of the season.

A source had explained to us: “He has had an operation on his ankle and should be fit by October so we don’t want to be waiting until January.”

The club would like to sign him on an initial year to look at his fitness with the offer of a longer tem deal if he proves himself back to full form.

  1. Good, his class is permanent and much needed.

  2. Yep,will be more than happy to have him back 😉

  3. Indeed he is class before Christmas when he was playing without injury as it seems; and we will not be in a Carroll-esque situation if we only get a year deal to test him.

  4. Will be good if we can get him, if not go for Kante who is younger, can do all the things Song can but makes a lot more tackles and interceptions.

  5. AC is also out until october, is he also “a little bit injured”?? Lol

  6. It sounds good but Song does have a 2 years left on his deal with Barca so why would he leave for 1 year with WH?

  7. Because he doesnt want to sit on Barcas bench for the next two years & his wife loves London.Sometimes its better to do what the missus wants for an easier life,lol

  8. They should offer him 3 years but the first at a reduced rate until he is fully fit and plays his first game for the first team if he is not happy with that let him have his Mrs grilling him every day,
    I think the deal for Kante will be done if Caen agree the fee,
