Yossi Beanyoun admits that he needs to play more first-team football at West Ham United to consider extending his loan spell.

West Ham United playmaker Yossi Benayoun has admitted that he is desperate to impress Sam Allardyce and earn more first-team chances at Upton Park.

Benayoun has made just two substitute appearances for the Hammers since joining on a season-long loan deal this summer.

The Israel captain was surprisingly dropped by national coach Eli Guttman for this weekend's World Cup qualifying double header against Luxembourg due to a lack of playing time.

The 32-year-old told The Sun that he needs to play more minutes to take up an option to extend his loan in east London.

He said: "There is an option to extend my loan.

"My ambition is to be here for a full season and to make it a good one. It's great to be here but there's strength in depth."

Beanyoun has amassed a vast array of Premier League experience with a string of clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and a previous spell with the Hammers.
