Arsenal midfielder Yossi Benayoun will wait until the end of the season to decide his future. The Israeli international is currently on loan from Chelsea and scored the 3rd goal in a 3-0 win over Wolves this week.

There remains question marks over his long term future at the Emirates Stadium, and he could even return to Stamford Bridge.


"I think it is difficult to speak now about the future," Benayoun said. "It's better to concentrate on the five weeks that are left of the season and do my best for the club.


"I am fully committed to Arsenal and after that we will see. After June 30, I am going back to Chelsea and then the club decides and I need to decide also. Each one has to think what is best for them, but the most important thing is to concentrate on these five weeks and whatever will be, will be.


"I will not lie. I love Chelsea because I have a good relationship there. I didn't play much because I had a big injury.


"I still have a lot of friends there I talk to every day. Of course, I want them to do well but it is difficult. I am committed to Arsenal 100 percent and I don't think about Chelsea or another team.


"I want first Arsenal to finish in the top three and, if it depended on me, I want Chelsea to finish in the top four and Liverpool also to finish in the top four. But it can't happen."
