West Ham have tabled a bid to sign Alex Song on a season long loan from Barcelona, with the player expected to arrive in London to complete a medical Saturday.
The former Arsenal midfielder, who signed for Barcelona two years ago, has fallen down the pecking order at the Nou Camp, and is keen to return to the Premier League.
Tottenham have also been interested in recruiting Song, however it looks like West Ham have won the race for his signature.
Jack Sullivan has today confirmed that the club expect to confirm a signing within the next 48 hours.
@jsullivanwhu: we have not made a bid for cleverly and he won’t be coming.
We hope to have news of a top signing within 48 hours if not sooner.
