West Ham United are favourites for Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun.

The Daily Express says Benayoun could be set for a return to West Ham as he is expected to announce his departure from Chelsea.

The midfielder who is currently on loan at Arsenal has had interest from his previous club West Ham and Dutch Ajax.

It has grown increasingly unlikely that the midfielder will be signed by the Gunners and West Ham are hoping that they will be able to convince him to make a move back to the club now they have returned to the Premier League.
