Yossi Benayoun leaves Liverpool for Chelsea

Saturday, July 3, 2010

Chelsea have snapped up Israel international Yossi Benayoun from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £5 million.

The 30-year-old, who is a proven Premier League performer who possesses the skill to unlock defences, has penned a three-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

Benayoun admitted towards the end of last season that his future was far from certain and speculation has steadily been mounting over a move to West London.

"I am very excited to come to a club like Chelsea, it is a big club and I think it is a dream for every player," he told the club's official website.

"Hopefully we will be successful."

Chelsea manafer Carlo Ancelotti added: "We are happy to have this new player.

"Yossi has a lot of quality in midfield and can play in lots of positions. I like his behaviour on the pitch and he will do a great job for us next season."

Benayoun becomes Ancelotti's first acquisition of the summer, and will link up with his new team-mates at Cobham for the beginning of pre-season on Monday.
