Benayoun to leave Chelsea in the summer

Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun will leave the club at the end of the season, according to the player's agent Ronen Katsav, with interest in him from Russia.

Benayoun, 32, is no longer a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge and has been sent on loan to Arsenal and West Ham in the last two seasons after spells out of the game with injury. Indeed, he has played only one game for the Blues since arriving in 2010 and has been attracting attention from the Russian league.

"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 are reported to be the two clubs most interested in signing Benayoun, while there will likely be English clubs who will want to bring him in as well.
