Cameroon and West Ham United midfielder Alex Song says he cannot wait to make his return to action with West Ham United.
Song returned to the Hammers for a second loan spell on deadline day but has had to wait for his debut this season after undergoing an ankle surgery in the summer.
With a comeback now in sight, Song who revealed he is getting better says he is dying to pull his boots on once more.
“I’m getting better and don’t want anything to hurt my foot.
“It’s very hard because I was always playing and seeing your team-mates play, you want to be with them and help them but I can’t at the moment.
“It’s about getting my treatment done properly and then coming back to help the team.
“It’s good for me to be here, the future of the club is really big, in the next five years West Ham will be a very big club in London and I want to be part of the story.” Song told the West Ham official website.
During his frist spell at Upton Park last season, Song made 25 starts from 28 league appearances for the Hammers to help the then Sam Allardyce led side to a 12th place finish.
