HARRY Redknapp admits he is lukewarm over signing Yossi Benayoun – when and if the former Champions League winner shows up for a QPR trial.

The manager admits he took a call offering the 33-year-old former Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder, but reckons he is currently overloaded in the middle third of the pitch.

Benayoun has been without a club since he left Stamford Bridge in the summer, and is reportedly keen to join a club headed to the Premier League.

But it would need a spate of injuries to tempt Harry to bid for the man who shares Israel's most appearances for his country with 94 caps.

The manager said: “Someone rang me about a week ago about him and I said I would be interested in having a look at him, but never heard no more.
