first_imgHarry Redknapp believes Yossi Benayoun would snub a move to Spain if QPR agree to give him a contract.The 33-year-old Israeli has been without a club since leaving Chelsea when his contract at Stamford Bridge expired during the summer.QPR were among several clubs who were then approached about signing Benayoun on a two-year deal and more recently his representatives suggested Rangers wanted him, leading to reports he was set for a move to Loftus Road.West London Sport revealed that R’s boss Redknapp had merely suggested Benayoun could join on trial and had not heard from him since.Redknapp offered Benayoun a trialBenayoun, who made his name in the Premier League at West Ham and had a spell at Liverpool before joining Chelsea in 2010, is keen to return to London.His bargaining position appeared to be strengthened by injuries to QPR’s Niko Kranjcar and Alejandro Faurlin as well as on-loan Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll.But Redknapp remains adamant that he wants to take a look at Benayoun in training before deciding whether to sign him.“I’ve always liked Benayoun as a player but it would be another wage on the wage bill,” said Redknapp.“If he was reasonable and it would be a reasonable deal he would be a good asset. It’s something we’d look at.“I haven’t heard from Yossi yet though. I think he’s got a couple of Spanish clubs who want him.“If we wanted to do it I think he’d rather come back to London and play. We’ll see what happens.”Man Utd v Arsenal: free bets offer for West London Sport readers See also:Ex-Chelsea man Benayoun offered QPR trialNo sign of Benayoun after offer of QPR trialQPR boss leaves door open for BenayounOnuoha back and Kranjcar may face ReadingSpurs’ Carroll edges closer to Rangers returnBenayoun impresses during Rangers trialBenayoun enters talks over Rangers dealQPR board reluctant to bring in BenayounQPR discuss shorter-term Benayoun dealBenayoun deal is done, says QPR’s BondQPR set to confirm six-month Benayoun dealRangers confirm the signing of Benayoun 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
