Football News: Benayoun going nowhere

Football News: The Yossi's not for turning

Latest FOOTBALL NEWS has it that Yossi Benayoun has been told he will not be sold - despite constant speculation linking him with a move away from Anfield.

In todays football news from the tabloids the Israeli midfielder was again linked with a move to Roma, the Italian club seeing him as one of their main transfer targets for this summer. However Benayoun has been assured by Rafa Benitez he will not be sold and the player himself is not looking to leave anyway so any such move would be highly unlikely.

The 28-year-old has impressed during pre-season, scoring three goals in seven games and playing a key role in Liverpool’s unbeaten run. Benayoun’s ability to play in a number of positions makes him a key member of Benitez’s first team squad and the Reds boss has made it clear to him that his future lies with Liverpool.

Furthermore, other news has it that contrary to previous news stories, there is no need whatsoever for Benayoun to be sold to finance the proposed signing of Gareth Barry as the funding for that possible deal is entirely separate. So the football news rumbles on, but this particular piece of news is likely not to happen!
