Benayoun signs Chelsea deal – reports

Reports in Israel this afternoon suggest that Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun has signed a 4-year deal with Chelsea.

Benayoun has been linked with the Premier League holders since the end of the season, with a fee of around £6million thought to have been agreed between the two clubs.

Reports say the 30-year-old midfielder will undergo a medical at Stamford Bridge later this week before his move to Carlos Ancelotti’s men is confirmed.

Benayoun made 92 appearances for Liverpool after signing from West Ham in 2007, scoring 18 times.
