Rumor Central: Benayoun looking for MLS home

This one comes courtesy of our good friends over at Sounder At Heart, a site you should already have bookmarked.

"Sounder at Heart has learned through two secondary sources that Yossi Benayoun has interest in playing in Major League Soccer and that the Seattle Sounders were told of that interest. Benayoun is in the final few months of his loan to West Ham United and full contract with Chelsea."

Benayoun is also 32 and has been through a series of leg injuries over the past couple of years. So while he may want to play in MLS, he may have to face the simple reality that he's not really a DP-type of player at this point.
