Song has returned to Spain following his loan spell last season in East London, and many expected now with the arrival of Pedro Obaing that Song was not considered an option to sign, this however is not the case.
David Sullivan told the clubs official website: “I can assure you we have not given up on Alex Song yet.
“Before Christmas Alex was outstanding and if we believe we can get him back to that sort of form and maybe with a new manager we can, we would very much like Alex to come.
“We are very thin on the ground with midfielders. You do get injuries and you need back-up. We have got Europe and other games that we want to win.
“There was not enough competition for places last season and this year we don’t want the same again. If the players have a bad game they will have to fight for their position back”
