Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun admits that he would like to move to a club in the MLS this summer.

Yossi Benayoun has revealed that he would like to move to a team in the MLS during this transfer window.

The midfielder is coming to the end of his contract with Chelsea, and has already confirmed that he plans to exit Stamford Bridge this summer.

The 33-year-old told the New York Post: "I finish my contract on 30th June. At the moment I'm in talks with several European teams.

"I'm checking my options but, to tell you the truth, America is one of my favourite options.

"I'm trying to do everything I can to come to America and play in the MLS, and hopefully it works out in the next few weeks."

Benayoun's agent has revealed that the New York Red Bulls are among the teams interested in signing his player.
