Yossi Benayoun is hoping that West Ham United will allow him to join Liverpool.
The Israeli midfielder - who had previously agreed to sign a new five-year-deal with the Hammers - is reportedly upset at West Ham's decision to reject a paltry bid of £3m from Liverpool for his services.
And according to his agent Ronen Katzav the 27-year-old midfielder is still hopeful that he will be allowed to leave Upton Park, having reneged on his decision to sign a new contract with the Hammers.
"We will sit tomorrow with West Ham and see where we are going to go," said Katsav after United told Liverpool that Benayoun was not for sale. "It is an unpleasant situation after we agreed terms but we will fight it.
"Still, if West Ham decide not to sell him he is theirs. But we will try to talk to them and convince them to let Yossi go."
