Former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun is poised to sign for Getafe.

The Israel international is a free agent after Chelsea failed to renew his contract when it expired back in June.

Benayoun was considering moving to MLS but he now looks set to feature in La Liga for the first time since leaving Racing Santander for West Ham in 2005.

The 33-year-old has reached an agreement with Getafe and could complete his move soon.
