Crystal Palace are reportedly being tempted by a cut-price deal for Alex Song with West Ham unlikely to keep the Barcelona loanee.
The Cameroon ace is coming towards the end of his second season on loan at Upton Park and, as his absence from the Hammers line-up of late indicates, the club won’t pay the fee to make the move permanent.
The former Arsenal star has only made 12 Premier League appearances this term and looks likely to go back on the transfer market in the summer with Barcelona not interested in keeping him either.
The Spanish champions are willing to sell the former Arsenal man for a cut-price fee of Â£4million, according to The Sun, and that has caught the attention of Palace boss Alan Pardew.
The Eagles will hope the prospect of staying in London could tempt Song to agree to make the move across the capital, although his reported wages of Â£80,000-per-week could prove to be a stumbling block.
