Midfielder returns at long last

SongsAlex Song is due to make his first appearance in a Hammers short since last season when he steps out for a behind-closed-doors match against Charlton tomorrow.

The midfielder has been training with the first team for the last week and the get fit match  has been planned to put an edge on the player ahead  ahead of the next game at White Hart Lane.

After having a piece of bone removed from his ankle Song’s recovery programme is bang on course with insiders having revealed to ClaretandHugh several weeks ago that November was the most likely month for his return.

Manager Slaven Bilic revealed: ‘It’s just a matter of fitness and match fitness. His first game for us after a long period is going to be a friendly on Wednesday – he is naturally fit guy.”

Song will be hoping to make the squad for the match at Spurs and beyond as he bids to show that he’s worth a permanent contract at the end of the season.

  1. After the disappointment over Payet’s injury, this is a welcome piece of good news, assuming he can show the form he had during the first half of last season. Still not forgotten that slide-rule pass he made for Downing’s goal against Hull.
