Benayoun hints at Anfield exit

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun is unsure whether he will still be at Anfield next season.

The Israel international has been a popular figure on Merseyside following his transfer from West Ham United and admits he would prefer to spend the rest of his career with the Reds.

However, Benayoun, who signed a new deal last July that ties him to the club until 2013, said:"It's very difficult to speak now about next season.

"We don't know what changes there will be – players, the staff, so I think it's too early to speak. I don't know personally even if I will be here or I will not be here. A lot of things can happen.

"It's nothing to do with (Rafa Benitez's future). I'm enjoying it here at this moment.

"If it depended on me, I would stay here and retire in Liverpool. The fans are the best in the world, but it depends on a lot of things. It will be very clear soon and we will just have to see in a few weeks."
