QPR manager Harry Redknapp is keen to sign Yossi Benayoun, after the former Liverpool and West Ham midfielder impressed whilst on trial, according to westlondonsport.
The 33-year-old has been without a club since leaving Chelsea in the summer and despite being heavily lined with a move to Malaga, the Rangers boss feels a deal could still be done.
“He’s just a smashing footballer,” said Redknapp.
“I tried to sign him when I was at Tottenham and have always enjoyed watching him play – he’s one of those players.
“He played at Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham so he can’t be a bad player, but he’s just training at the moment and we’ll see what happens.
“I’ve never discussed contracts or anything. I spoke to him, invited him in to train and he’s come in and joined in with the group.”
A QPR Under-21 side play in the Premier League cup tomorrow at Reading, giving Redknapp the perfect opportunity to see his man in action but the former Spurs boss doesn’t feel the Israeli will need game time to get fit.
“He’s never going to be unfit because he’s such a slim lad. Getting fit won’t be a problem for him. He hasn’t got to lose any weight.
“I don’t need to see him play in a game. I’ve seen him play so many times and know what he can do,” he added.
QPR currently sit in third in the Championship having amassed 35 points from their opening 16 games. Leicester and Burnley are ahead of them, only on goal difference, but Redknapp will be undoubtedly be looking to strengthen his side heading into the January transfer window.
