Benayoun to snub exit offers

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun says he has received several offers from other clubs, but insists that he is happy to stay at Anfield next season. The 29-year-old Israel international has scored 20 goals in 89 appearances for the Reds, often having to be content with a place on the subs bench. However, he told an Israeli radio station: "This has been the best season of my career. I have played a lot of games and scored some important goals and I am very happy with that. "At the moment I am a Liverpool player and unless something surprising happens, I will remain one. "But after such a good season, I have had some offers from England and Spain. "You have to give that some consideration, so there will probably be some discussions with Liverpool. "I have had a great two years at Anfield and enjoyed every minute. The good thing is I have been playing more recently and I hope it continues that way. "To be honest, it could be Real Madrid knocking on my door and I would still rather stay at Liverpool for four more years."
