Israeli attacking midfielder Yossi Benayoun has completed his loan deal at West Ham United, and has returned to Chelsea.
“Yossi Benayoun has completed his loan spell at West Ham United and returns to Chelsea today,” the club said in a statement on their website on Thursday.
Benayoun, who last played for West Ham on November 11 due to knee trouble, has scored once for Chelsea in 11 appearances since he joined from Liverpool in 2010.
A West Ham statement read: “West Ham United can confirm that the loan of Yossi Benayoun has ended and he has returned to Chelsea.
“The club would like to thank Yossi for his efforts during his second spell with the Hammers and wish him the best of luck for his future career.”
