Yossi Benayoun Set To Stay With Liverpool FC

Yossi Benayoun’s agent expects the midfielder to stay at Liverpool after denying interest from Italian outfit Roma.

Roma are understood to be keeping tabs on the Israel international and his representative Ronen Katzav admits the interest is flattering.

Benayoun is under contract with the Reds and has not been told that he is surplus to requirements so Katzav is reluctant to dwell on the transfer talk.

“We weren’t contacted by Roma,” said Katzav.

“We know of an interest from Roma, but there was no contact.

“Would Roma be a welcome destination? Yes, it couldn’t be otherwise.

“But to speak is useless because my client has a contract with Liverpool and he’s good in England.

“Nobody from the Reds has told me that Yossi is on the market, so I couldn’t say how much his value is.

“For now, the future of Benayoun is at Liverpool. If new scenarios open, we’ll see in the summer.”
