Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Alex Song has signed a new long-term contract with the Club.
Song, 20, originally joined Arsenal on a season-long loan from
French side Bastia in 2005, before signing permanently in July 2006. He
impressed greatly during a loan spell with Charlton Athletic in the
2006/07 season, before returning to the Club last season.
Alex, who has made six appearances for Cameroon, featured 15 times
for the first team last season. Although a strong holding midfielder,
Song can also operate in defence, and played at centre-back for the
last five matches of the 2007/08 season.
Everyone at the Club is delighted that Alex has signed a new
contract and looks forward to him being part of the first-team squad in
the forthcoming years.
