West Ham United are reportedly close to re-signing midfielder Alex Song on a free transfer from Barcelona.

The 27-year-old holding midfielder impressed on loan at Upton Park last season and it was feared the former Arsenal enforcer would not return to east London.

Now, though, the Daily Telegraph claim the Cameroonian international will re-join Slaven Bilic's side on a free transfer with his salary estimated to be in the region of £70,000 per week.

Song made 25 Premier League appearances for Sam Allardyce's side last season whilst on loan from the Catalan giants.
