thumbnail Hello,

The former England international has been a free agent since he was released by Aston Villa and has confirmed he is now ready to consider offers from the right clubs

Emile Heskey says he is fit and ready to get back into football and hopes to find a new club as soon as possible.

Heskey left Aston Villa at the end of last season and has been unsuccessful in his attempts to find a new club over the summer.

But now the former England striker is determined to get back into football and hopes to join a new team as soon as possible, after turning down several offers over the summer.

He told reporters:"I feel as fit and hungry as I have done in a long time and have been training everyday throughout the summer.

"As has been reported I did receive a number of offers during the transfer window but didn't feel like any of them were the right opportunity for me at that time.

"I'm now looking forward to hopefully securing a new club over the coming days."
