Benayoun nearing Chelsea exit

Yossi Benayoun appears to be on the verge of leaving Chelsea.

Benayoun has seen just one minute of action for the Blues this season and looks to be surplus to requirements following the arrival Juan Mata from Valencia.

He wrote on Twitter: "negotiating with several team (sic) soon."

It has been reported that Benayoun would be included in an offer from the Blues for Spurs playmaker Luka Modric and Newcastle have also been linked with the Israel captain, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool last summer on a free transfer.

Benayoun was restricted to 10 appearances for the club last season due to an Achilles injury, which kept him out for six months.
