Report: Yossi Benayoun heading to West Ham on loan

One of the names everyone expected to see departing Stamford Bridge today was Yossi Benayoun. It doesn't look like we'll be waiting for too much longer, as there are reports everywhere that a deal between Chelsea and West Ham United to take Yossi Benayoun on loan is basically done.

Benayoun will become the twenty second player Chelsea have sent on loan this window, although he'll certainly not be featuring in the loan roundups. He's out of contract at the end of the season, and after two consecutive seasons on loan it looks like we've seen the last of Benayoun in Chelsea blue.

*The most shocking part of this news is that some rumors are suggesting Yossi is on 92K per week. If true, that would make an already terrible signing look that much worse. No wonder nobody wanted the guy.
