Whether the ex-England international would be welcomed is a different question…
Ex-Liverpool and England forward Emile Heskey has admitted that he would love to return to the Premier League, reports the BBC.
The 36-year-old is without a club after a two year spell with Newcastle Jets in Australia. He is currently acting in an ambassadorial role for former club Leicester City.
It is apparently the Foxes who could be interested in the player who also used to play for Aston Villa. The promoted club haven’t scored in five games and have space in their 25 man squad for a free agent.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leicester he said he would welcome a playing return to the club he left in 2000.
“It goes without saying, I’d love to come,” he said. “It is a great club that allowed me to get to the platform that I got to. I was an England international when I was with Leicester so that was a great achievement.”
He last played in April, but says that he is “fit enough.”
Heskey scored 46 times in 196 games for the team now managed by Nigel Pearson between the years of 1994 and 2000. His goalscoring record for the national team is less flattering, with seven goals in sixty two appearances leading to ridicule from supporters.
