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.
