Released Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun is undergoing an intensive week's training with Maccabi Haifa.

The Daily Mail says interest from West Bromwich Albion rekindled his ambition to remain in England and prove he can still make an impact in the top flight.

"I must work on my fitness and make sure I am in peak condition, and I am grateful to Haifa for allowing me to join them for the coming week," he said.

"I am going to work hard every day, so that wherever I go when I decide on my future, I will start the pre-season programme with my new club in good shape. I should know more next weekend."
