Benayoun to leave Chelsea

by Michelle Fortune , 07 March 2013

Yossi Benayoun will leave Chelsea at the end of the season, his agent Ronen Katsav has revealed.

Benayoun has only managed a handful of games since joining Chelsea in 2010 with injuries preventing him from becoming a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge.

He spent some time on loan with Arsenal and West Ham and his agent has confirmed that the midfielder will be allowed to leave the club when his contract runs out in the summer.

"The player is concentrating on this season and he is committed at Chelsea," Katsav told Russian paper Izvestia.

"He will be released at the end of the season and, being a good player, it is normal that there is interest from several clubs. Before the expiry of his contract we will consider all offers."

Rubin Kazan and Lokomotiv Moscow have both been linked with a move for the 32-year-old, although he could attract interest from some Premier League clubs.
