Video: Alex Song puts doubts about his fitness aside at Chadwell Heath

The West Ham midfielder was hard at work during practice.

Alex Song has been filmed working hard in West Ham United training despite recent doubts about his fitness.

There were worries about Song's fitness ahead of his proposed move to West Ham, according to the Daily Star, with the former Barcelona man only completing a switch on Deadline Day - despite a deal being in place over a week earlier.

But Song looks like he is getting up to speed at Chadwell Heath in the above video, putting the extra time afforded to him by the international break to good use.

The 27-year-old was one of four last-day signings for West Ham and, as many have stated, could prove a real gem for the Hammers should he replicate the form he showed during the first half of last season. And, as others have suggested, Song could be allowed to make more of an impact now that he has the likes of Victor Moses and Michail Antonio making the right runs to be fed by the Cameroonian.

If he keeps working hard in training, then, the 27-year-old should be more than ready to make an impact on the pitch for West Ham when the Premier League returns.
