West Ham United have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Barcelona midfielder Alex Song on a permanent basis.

The former Arsenal star will sign a three-year deal if the 27-year-old midfielder passes the medical. He underwent ankle surgery earlier this summer and has to prove his fitness in order to complete his move from the Spanish side.
“We have a deal in place with Alex Song subject to a medical,” Hammers co-chairman David Sullivan told KUMB Podcast. “If the medical is okay, we’ll take him.
“He’s injured at the moment, which is something you’ve got to weight up, but we’ve got until September 1 to make a decision.”
Song spent seven seasons at the Emirates before joining the Nou Camp in 2012.
The Hammers return to EPL action on Saturday when they face Bournemouth at Upton Park.
