Yossi Benayoun is closing on a move away from Chelsea and has confirmed that he is in talks with a number of clubs.

The Israeli midfielder has taken in just one minute of action for the Blues this season, with new boss Andre Villas-Boas favouring other options.

Benayoun has tumbled further down the pecking order following the arrival of Juan Mata from Valencia, with Stamford Bridge now well-stocked on creative talent.

Rumours were suggesting that Benayoun could be moved on before Villas-Boas dipped back into the transfer market, with it clear that he would find himself on the fringes of the first-team fold.

It was claimed that Chelsea were willing to use him as part of their efforts to lure Luka Modric away from Tottenham.

Negotiating

Newcastle are also said to hold an interest in Benayoun, who only moved to West London last summer.

He was, however, restricted to just 10 appearances in 2010/11, with an Achilles problem sidelining him for six months.

Benayoun accepts that he may be forced to move on once more and has revealed that discussions regarding a switch elsewhere have been opened.

He wrote on Twitter: "negotiating with several team (sic) ...news soon."
