Benayoun looks to be on outer with Chelsea

Yossi Benayoun faces anxious wait over his future after Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez dropped suggested the 32 year old is no longer needed at Stamford Bridge, reports . The player has returned to West London following a four-month loan spell at West Ham in which he made just six appearances.

Benitez said: "He is here now but he's injured and he's working with the physios. We will see what happens.

"The question is how many players we have - we have six players in these positions. He's a very good player, no doubt about this, but again I would say we have six players in these positions. We have to manage the situation."

Benayoun, who also spent last season on loan at Arsenal, has a contract until June 2013 but under FIFA rules is able to negotiate with other clubs now.
