Biography

Alexandre Dimitri Song Billong (born 9 September 1987, Douala, Cameroon), known as Alex Song, is a Cameroonian player who plays for West Ham United on loan and the Cameroon national team as a defensive midfielder.

In 2003-2004, Song joined the Bastia youth system and became a part of the first team the next season. During his period in Ligue 1, Song attracted the attention of many clubs in Europe. Finally, in 2005, the Cameroonian was loaned to Arsenal for a spell. The next season, Song signed for Arsenal definitively. During Song's stay at the Emirates Stadium, he had to move to Charlton Athletic on a loan for one season before staying with the Gunners in the end. After four seasons at Arsenal, he became the cornerstone of the team even more after the departure of Cesc Fabregas to FC Barcelona. Finally, on 20 August 2012, Song was signed for FC Barcelona whose team he hasn't manged to appear in regular line-ups yet. After causing good impressions at the beginning of his signing for the Catalonian club, little by little, Song had less prominence as Sergi Busquets was the regular defensive-midfielder. In his thrid year with Barcelona, Song was loaned to the East London club, West Ham.

In spite of having French passport, Song decided to play for the Cameroon national time with whom he has participated in the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana, the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola, the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Song is considered a tireless player with good reading of opposition's attacks. With frequence, Song tends to get yellow cards because of his penchant for disrupting opponents counter-attacks risking. Song can also play as a center back.
