QPR boss Harry Redknapp says he'd like to offer trials to released Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun.

Redknapp has issued a plea to Yossi Benayoun to fly to England and prove his fitness.

He told Israel's Sports Channel 5: "I really like Yossi, he's an excellent player. At the moment we haven't signed him because he hasn't played for a long time, so we'd need to check out his fitness."

When asked if this was the only thing preventing QPR from signing the Israeli, Redknapp added, "It would help me decide if he came here and trained with us for a couple of days."
