Yossi Benayoun agreed terms on a move to Spartak Moscow in the January transfer window, before being persuaded to stay by Rafael Benitez.

The 28 year old Israeli was on the brink of leaving Anfield, but has recently returned to form after a heart to heart with his manager.

“Benayoun was our prime target in the winter transfer window,” revealed Spartak general director Valery Karpin yesterday.

“We needed a creative attacking midfielder of his calibre in our squad. He was ready to come and play for Spartak but in the end Benitez did not let him leave Liverpool.”
