West Ham are hoping to seal the permanent signing of Alex Song over the next 48 hours and Carl Jenkinson’s second loan spell could be the second signing heavily hint at on the official site on Wednesday.
But the pursuit of a central defender is still hard going with the club having been told they will need to bid over £20 million for Dynamo Kiev’s Aleksandar Dragovic (right).
That’s a big blow but the Hammers board are moving heaven and earth to bring in a top class central defender given that manager Slaven Bilic has made that his priority signing since attending his interview for the job.
However, it’s believed that Barcelona are close to agreeing a free transfer for Song who would arrive at The Boleyn on a three year deal worth around £70k a week.
Talks over a second Jenkinson loan spell are continuing with the Hammers now very heful things will be settled before the weekend.
