Song lights fuse on £10m Irons bid

Song-edited1_3197599West Ham have this morning welcomed Alex Song’s declaration that he wants to stay in England at the end of the season.

The player has declared that he wants to remain in London thus, it seems, putting any hopes Galatasaray in particular have of agreeing a deal when he comes to the end of his Hammers deal.

And that has delighted top sources at the club, one of whom said: “At the moment the developing plan is to make Alex our marquee signing.

“Strikers are usually the players who take the lion’s share of the transfer kitty but we are well placed in that area which leaves us able to make a major bid elsewhere if we choose and Alex is a top player.”

The Irons believe that it will cost a fee of around £10 million to land Song and seem ready to push the boat out in his direction>”

Song said:  “My future will be here. My family, everyone, is happy here. I’ve always said if I move from Barcelona I’ll come to England and my future is here anyway.

“I just want to enjoy playing and we’ll see what is happening at the end of the season.”

  1. What he means is he’ll see where we finish,and even then i’m not convinced he sees us as a club he wants to commit to long term,call me cynical but i believe,he wants guaranteed champions league football elsewhere in London. C.O.Y.I.

  2. I also think he came to us to raise his profile so he can get the wages and move that he wants elsewhere in the premiership. If we do finish in the heady heights of European football we are going to need his services so would be great if he would stay. Cannot see it happen though.
    On another note if we do finish in a European place we will need to bolster our squad and have nearly enough decent quality players for 2 teams. If not, we could well see ourselves struggling in the premiership and I would seriously hate to see us playing championship football at the OS. I pray this does not happen.

  3. Stop mucking about! Sign him! Simple as that!
