Does Yossi Want Out?

Both the NoW and Sky Sports have reported an illegal tapping up of Yossi Benayoun. What is more worrying is that Yossi has said he will consider an £8.5 million five-year deal offered by Hapoel Tel Aviv if they approach West Ham properly.

The rumour seems to be true as West Ham managing director Paul Aldridge told the News of the World: "The Fifa rules are clear in respect of speaking with players registered to other clubs. We expect these rules to be adhered to and will act if an illegal approach has been made. There are a number of options available to us and we would need to consider the most appropriate."

Benayoun also confessed that another Israeli side had contacted him about the possibility of a move.

What is most worrying is that Yossi has said he might consider the move. Perhaps like Repka he is homesick. . When he played for the Ajax youth team he did get home sick and leave in the middle of the season to go back to Israel.

It would be a big loss to us if he did leave. Although he has been a little inconsistant in my opinion, he has the ability to turn a game, and has done. I hoped the Katan signing might settle him a little, I guess we'll have to wait and see. A new right back must be top of the agenda for now though.
