Yossi Benayoun: Considering his options after being linked to West Brom

The Israel international has been released by Chelsea this summer following three years at Stamford Bridge and is now considering his options.

He has also previously played for West Ham United, Liverpool and Arsenal, and has become accustomed to life in England.

Benayoun's representative, Ronen Katzev, says there are a couple of clubs keen to keep him in the Premier League and claims that he is on West Brom's radar.

However, there is also interest from Germany and the 33-year-old does not want to rush into making a decision.

Katzev said: "West Brom have registered their interest and now we are just waiting to see what other options are available.

"We have been negotiating with another club in the Premier League and clubs in Germany and Spain, so Yossi will have to make a decision very soon.

"He has been playing in England for a long time now so it has become like a second home to him."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
