Steve Clarke is rumored to be considering a move for Chelsea spare part Yossi Benayoun in an effort to create a deeper bench at the Hawthorns.
Benayoun is likely beyond the point where he could be considered an above average starter in the Premier League. The 33 year-old midfielder could, however, certainly be a valuable reserve in 20 and 30 minute spurts for the Baggies. With depth an issue for Clarke, this would be a solid move. As an occasional thing, bringing on a veteran bench player can be a great idea, the key is not to do it too often or else you find yourself with no assets and no upside (see Fulham).

Yossi Benayoun wants to move to the MLS this summer once his contract expires.

Benayoun hasn't received much playing time at Chelsea this season. He is 33 years old now and with Chelsea likely signing Schürrle, Benayoun's playing time should decrease even more. Chelsea's midfield options are much better with Schürrle, Hazard, Mata, Lampard, Oscar, Ramires, and others. The New York Red Bulls are rumored to be interested in his skills.
