Alex Song watched tonight’s game from the stands and is likely to be announced as a permanent Hammers signing by the weekend.
The midfielder has been at Chadwell Heath for several days now and joined first teamers in their training session before the game with Lusiens.
Song is believes to have agreed terms with the club for a three year deal and we are understood to be close to agreeing the free transfer from Barcelona to the east end of London.
ClaretandHugh was told tonight: “It looks likely the announcement will come before or over the weekend.”
In the meantime Diego Poyet showed against Lusiens that he is set to get more game time in the Song position although manager for the night Terry Westley said he needed to make things happen with “one sweeping pass rather than two or three.”
