West Ham Agree Benayoun Price

According to the BBC West Ham have agreed to sell Benayoun to Liverpool for £4 million. Benayoun had agreed to sign a new contract at the beginning of the summer but after hearing of Liverpool's interest he then asked for a clause allowing him to leave if West Ham received a bid from the Reds.

This seems to have been the final straw for Eggy and Curbishley. Benayoun had already annoyed the West Ham management last season by turning out for his country at the same time as claiming to be too injured to play for West Ham. They therefore responded to his request for a clause by withdrawing the contract offer.
