Wenger: Song not on his way back to Arsenal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled out a return for midfielder Alex Song at the end of the season from Barcelona. It was also claimed that The Gunners had a buy-out clause - but Wenger says there was no clause in the contract and believes Song would be best advised to stay.

"There is no buy-back [clause] in his contract," said Wenger.

"He is a quality player and sometimes the players have to insist when it doesn't go well and not change his mind too soon.

"My personal advice for him would be to give it another go and after two seasons he can still make a decision."
