Song is 'ready' says West Ham chairman

West Ham United chairman David Gold has revealed that Alexandre Song is close to making a return to first team football.

Song hasn't played for the Hammers this season due to an ankle injury, but according to Gold, the Cameroon national is close to making his return.

Asked by West Ham fan @dizzeyyjr on twitter when Song will be back in action, Gold responded with: "He's ready to go."

Last week West Ham head coach Slaven Bilic stated that the 28-year-old will be available for selection in three weeks.

West Ham next face Premier League holder Chelsea followed by games against Watford and Everton before the November international break.
