Irons look for loan during Song recovery

cambiasso_3038534kWest Ham will wait for Alex Song to make a full recovery from his ankle operation before attempting to complete a deal which would see him join the club on a three year contract.

However, they are casting their net far and wide in a bid to find a loan signing to cover for the next three months whilst they wait for Song to report himself fully recovered.

The Irons have been linked with Esteban Cambiasso but the free signing is unlikely to want such a short term deal at this stage of his career.

However, we were told: “He is a possible and there are a couple of others. We like Alex and want to sign him on a permanent deal so long as he makes a full recovery. He provides real creativity from the back.

“A loan signing on a short term deal while we look to complete a permanent deal for a fit Alex Song is the way we would like to go.”

  1. Makes sense to me, maybe Cambiasso will think he can play so well in the 3 months the club will have to give him longer

  2. Is there any guarantee Song will sign with us anyway?

  3. Club need to realize that they can’t keep stringing Barca along like this, especially when we are the ones making all the demands and offering nowt in return. We push em much more and whats to stop them telling us to get stuffed.
    Would rather we offer him something like a year contract with an option for another 2 if he can recover the fitness and form he showed at the start of last season. Misses 3 months but we guarantee he is ours and we only take the risk on the years wages. Ofc this is assuming Song would sign that sort of deal.
