Injury prevented Song from joining West Ham permanently

Catalan daily newspaper Sport has learned that an ankle injury was the main reason why West Ham opted against turning Alex Song’s loan deal into permanent move.

The Hammers wanted to sign the Cameroon star on permanent basis after he impressed during the loan spell at Boleyn Ground and Barcelona were keen to sell.

However, Song ended up returning to Camp Nou before signing another loan deal with the Hammers on transfer deadline day.

It has now been revealed that West Ham officials were concerned by the player’s ankle problem and eventually decided not to try and purchase his contract.

Song is now set to miss several weeks of action through said injury, but the Hammers might end up signing him on permanent basis at the end of the season provided he has proved his fitness during the current season.

The 27-year-old made a total of 28 Premier League appearances for the club last term.
