Reports are out claiming that West Ham United midfielder Alex Song says he wants to stay in England.
The Cameroon international defensive midfielder is on-loan at West Ham from Barcelona.
Song, speaking on Sky’s The Fantasy Football Club, said: “I definitely want to stay here (in England). I don’t know (if I can sign a permanent deal at West Ham).
“I can’t say anything now because I want to focus on the rest of the season and then we will see.
“The problem with West Ham is that we don’t have a very big squad. I was saying to people it was too early to say that we will finish fourth or fifth. I think we have to target an eighth-placed finish this season.
“I always said if we finish tenth it would be perfect because we don’t have a squad like an Arsenal or Chelsea. When we have one or two players injured, we don’t have a big player to come on.”
