Former West Ham United midfielder Alex Song has posted a picture of himself wearing an Irons kit on an Instagram story, and Hammers fans have been quick to react.
The former Cameroon international impressed during a two-season loan spell with the east London outfit between 2014 and 2016, who is still a free agent having been allowed to look for a new club by Rubin Kazan in January.
The 30-year-old may well be looking to impress potential suitors ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, but it seems unlikely new Irons boss Manuel Pellegrini would have any interest in him as he looks to bring in some youth and inject some pace into his team – the potential arrival of an electric 22-year-old attacker would have a huge impact on Javier Hernandez’s future.
Nevertheless, West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the Song image, and while one pleaded with the board to “make it happen” in regards of a return, another said “bring him back, still better than Kouyate”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
