Alex Song Waves Bye Bye To EPL; Joins Rubin Kazan On A Free Transfer


Former Arsenal, Barcelona and West Ham midfielder Alex Song has signed for Russian side, Rubin Kazan.

The Cameroon international spent two seasons on loan at the Hammers after failing to establish himself in the Barcelona side but has joined the Russian club as a free agent.

An announcement on Rubin’s official website did not give details of the 28-year-old’s deal.

The defensive-midfielder, who has won 49 caps for his national team, joined Arsenal in 2006 and spent six years in London before moving to Barcelona.

The Spanish champions confirmed they and Song had reached an agreement to terminate his contact.

A statement on the club’s website said: “FC Barcelona wishes the Cameroonian luck and much success in what follows of his professional career.”

Former Malaga boss Javi Gracia took over as Rubin’s head coach at the end of May following their 10th-place finish in last season’s Russian Premier League.

  1. I don’t know why West Ham didn’t buy him, he was great for them. Still has that quality…but his wages are quite high though.
