Bilic hopeful of Song deal
Slaven Bilic is optimistic Alex Song's return to West Ham is imminent and the Barcelona midfielder will not have an issue in passing a medical.
Hammers co-owner David Sullivan said a deal has been agreed to sign the 27-year-old Cameroon international on a three-year deal, if the midfielder can pass a medical following an ankle problem.
Song starred on a season-long loan at Upton Park last season and Bilic, whose side play Bournemouth on Saturday, is keen for the former Arsenal player to return before the September 1 transfer deadline.
"We would like to get him. It's down to the medical," Bilic said.
"We are really confident he is going to pass the medical. We've got a lot of positive comments or details about his improvement.
"That kind of injury is not a big injury."
