Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has broken silence in regards to rumours making the round of Alex Song joining the Gunners as a free agent.
A picture emerged of Song training with Arsenal on deadline day sparking theories he could be signing up for Wenger’s side.
But the Arsenal boss says he is just using the facilities to get up to speed and is looking for a new team.
“He is looking for a new club,” he said.
“I allowed him to come in to work on his fitness.
“Nothing more than that.”
Song left Rubin Kazan last year after problems over late payments.
He had spent four years struggling at Barcelona after a good spell at Arsenal until 2012.
In that time he spent two seasons on loan at West Ham but had difficulties with injuries and didn’t get a long-term deal there.
Arsenal fans were excited by the prospect of a return of one of the old boys.
But Wenger has ruled that out for now despite letting Francis Coquelin go and having injury fears for the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.
