Crystal Palace could be tempted by a deal for Alex Song in the summer, with West Ham unlikely to make his loan stay permanent.
The Cameroon midfielder is coming towards the end of his second season on loan at Upton Park from Barcelona, but appears unlikely to return after the summer having fallen out of favour under Hammers coach Slaven Bilic recently.
The 28-year-old 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.
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.
