Cape Town - On-loan at West Ham from Barcelona, Alex Song wants to stay in England if the La Liga giants no longer want to keep him.

Sky Sports report that the Cameroon midfielder considers England to be his most likely alternative if his stay at the Catalan giants comes to an end.

Song, who was named Man of the Match as West Ham shocked Manchester City last weekend, believes his future lies in England.

"No, I think my future will be here." said the 27-year-old midfielder.

“My family, everyone is happy here.

I’m very happy to come back to England.

"I've always said if I move from Barcelona, I’ll come to England and my future is here anyway.

"I just want to enjoy playing at the moment and we’ll see what is happening at the end of the season."

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is likely to hand Alex Song another starting role for the Hammers as they travel to take on Stoke on Saturday.

Stoke City against West Ham United at the Britannia Stadium gets underway at 17:00.
