Promising Song strengthens Arsenal ties

Promising 20-year-old midfield player Alexandre Song has followed Bacary Sagna's example by agreeing a new long-term contract with Arsenal FC.

Arsenal FC midfielder Alexandre Song has signed a new long-term contract with the London club.

Fresh terms
Though no details have been disclosed, the new deal will keep the 20-year-old in north London beyond June 2010 when his previous contract was set to expire. Capped eight times by Cameroon, he is the second Arsenal player to renew his ties with the Premier League side in the last week after Bacary Sagna. Song arrived at the club on loan from French outfit SC Bastia in 2005, a deal that was turned into a permanent transfer in July of the following year. A loan spell with Charlton Athletic FC followed in 2006/07, before Song returned to Arsenal last season and made nine league appearances and two in the UEFA Champions League.
