West Ham could bring Yossi Benayoun back for a third spell at the club, according to manager Sam Allardyce.
Benayoun, who enjoyed an initial two-year spell at the club between 2005 and 2007, moved to Upton Park on loan earlier this season but headed back to parent club Chelsea in January.
Although the Israeli has returned to the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge, he is set to be released in the summer and Allardyce has revealed his interest in tempting the 32-year-old back to east London.
When asked about the prospect of signing Benayoun, he said: "I've not thought about that yet. It's about being safe then securing my position and seeing where we go.
"There will be lots of clubs chasing players who won't cost anything in terms of a transfer fee. He will be on our list probably but we will wait and see when the time comes around."
