Former Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham midfielder Yossi Benayoun is set to move on a free transfer to La Liga outfit Getafe, according to the Spanish Daily Marca.

The Israeli midfielder, who only managed six appearances last season due to injuries, left Chelsea in the summer when his contract expired. 

Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace had been heavily linked with the 33-year-old, but Benayoun was convinced a return to Spanish football would be the best move for him. 

The wide-man played for Racing Santander between 2002-2005, before making his Premier League switch to West Ham.

Benayoun is one of the most decorated Israeli football players in the nation's history, and is joint record cap holder with 94. He's scored 24 goals throughout his international career, and it is expected that he will make it to the 100 cap landmark before hanging up his boots. 

Despite turning out for some very successful teams during his time in England, Benayoun managed to win just the one trophy, the Europa League with Chelsea last season.

Now it seems Benayoun will end his career back in Spain after a successful eight-year spell in England for the popular midfielder.
