Ex-West Ham man Gary O'Neil praises David Gold for Alex Song signing

The former Hammers midfielder has been impressed by the Premier League side's summer transfer business.

West Ham United's summer transfer business has earned them plenty of admirers this season. The signings of Alex Song, Diafra Sakho, Mauro Zarate, Aaron Cresswell and more have transformed the east London side both in terms of their results and how they go about getting them.

Observers, then, have been keen to line up one after another to praise the Hammers for their recruitment drive.

And former West Ham midfielder Gary O'Neil is the latest name to have been added to that list

Indeed, the Norwich City man, who left QPR last summer, having left West Ham to join them the summer before, praised David Gold on Twitter for his side's summer dealings.

Alex Song, in particular, was the subject of his admiration.

O'Neil left Upton Park in the summer of 2013 after being released by the club. The news was broken by Gold on Twitter that the midfielder had turned down West Ham's offer of a contract.

The 31-year-old now pays his football for Norwich in the Championship, with the Canaries currently sitting 10th in the table. Norwich had previously been top, however, until a run of poor results means they are now eight points off first.
