Benayoun move is on

By Simon Griver, October 25, 2013

QPR are set to sign free agent Yossi Benayoun.

Sources close to the deal say that there are only small differences between Benayoun and the Championship side who are believed to have offered him a 20-month contract.

QPR are eager to complete the deal so that Benayoun is available for Saturday’s top of the table clash against Burnley at Turf Moor.

He has been training with Maccabi Haifa and Bnei Yehuda since being released by Chelsea in June.

Capped 94 times by Israel, Benayoun was dropped for the World Cup qualifiers in September and October due to a lack of match time.
