Benayoun holds Malaga talks

12 November 2013 15:40

La Liga outfit Malaga are in talks to sign former Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun, according to general manager Vicente Casado.

The Israel international has been looking for a club since being released by Chelsea in the close-season.

Benayoun has been linked with a possible move to join Championship side QPR, but he could now return to Spain where he previously had a three-year stint with Racing Santander.

However, as the 33-year-old holds a non-EU passport, Casado confirmed one of the club's three non-EU players would have to be moved out to make space for Benayoun.

Speaking to La Opinion De Malaga, Casado said: "We are in contact with some interesting players.

"One of them is Benayoun, but he's not already signed.

"He is a non-EU player and if he comes, one of the other non-EU players, Weligton, (Roberto) Chen or (Pedro) Morales, should leave."

Malaga have had an inauspicious start to the season, taking 13 points from as many La Liga fixtures, a return that leaves Bernd Schuster's men in 14th position.

They resume their league campaign at home to Athletic Bilbao after the international break.
