QPR boss Harry Redknapp retains hope of signing released Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun.

Redknapp is worried about adding the former Champions League winner on a reported £65,000-a-week at Chelsea to a Championship pay roll.

"It's difficult to bring people in when it's another wage, but I like him and if it was reasonable deal and the club were happy with it then he would be an asset that's for sure," said Redknapp.

"I think there are a couple of Spanish clubs in for him, but I also think he would rather come back to London."
