The Daily Mail (www.dailymail.co.uk) amongst others has quotes from Emile Heskey confirming he will be leaving Aston Villa.

The news I think we were all dreading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

close

He says he has enjoyed his time at Villa “But there are no contract talks with Villa so I will be looking elsewhere” and admits he hasn`t got a new club signed and sealed yet.

He has no plans to retire as yet, “I want to carry on playing. I’m 34, I still feel I can play so I don’t see why I need to retire just now.”

pointing

He would still like to continue in the Premiership, I would say he might do a good job for one of the struggling teams but having been one of them this season, maybe I can`t be so high and mighty any more?

On the constant rumours that Heskey will return to his home town club Leicester City, he adds, ‘There is nothing on that. There is a possibility that might happen. I’m not going to turn anything down. I’ll look at anything, have a little break, and then see what offers there are.’

So there you go, the end for us of Emile Ivanhoe Heskey.
