Earlier this year he announced his international retirement, citing a wish to focus on rebuilding his domestic career with Hammers.

Song, who joined Barcelona for £15million from Arsenal in August 2012, made 65 appearances for the Catalan side prior to his first loan switch to the Hammers in 2014.

He becomes West Ham's eighth arrival during the transfer window, joining goalkeeper Darren Randolph, defenders Angelo Ogbonna and Carl Jenkinson and midfielders Pedro Obiang, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and George Dobson at Slaven Bilic's team.
