Emile Heskey To Return To Old Club Leicester City?

Emile Heskey To Return To Old Club Leicester City?

Not sure if we are going to see much player transfer action before the end of the deadline. Difficult to do the business without a permanent manager really isn't it?

Even the press have given up on the gossip!

Only snippet I can find is by Graham Hill in The Sun linking Emile Heskey to Leicester City.

A return to his former club could be on following the takeover at The Foxes.

They quote Foxes No 2 Bruno Oliveira when asked if Heskey was a target: 'It would make a big impact. Craig Bellamy was an opportunity that Dave Jones took.'

hope so,he is pitiful for such a big strong bloke.he looks like he can`t be arsed and just goes through the motions,let someone else pay him to do that.

He is a clueless lump - get rid
Pancho Villan
20/08/2010 09:12:00
bye then
20/08/2010 09:23:00
was embarrassing last night against Vienna, should have helped lead the kids but didn't look up to it, time to go.
20/08/2010 09:35:00
Why so quick to be rid? No transfers allowed in, Harewood gone, Carew injured, Wiemann injured, Gabby injured, Fonz only striker left. There is some great thinking going on here.
20/08/2010 10:20:00
Lets just drop him off somewhere and pretend that nobody saw us :s
20/08/2010 11:42:00
Would be happy to take anything for heskey, 2m, 1m, 500k, FREE! Aslong as we finally get rid of him. Nothing personal he just isnt premiership quality never mind top 6 quality.
20/08/2010 12:06:00
Free? Get him off the wage bill?
20/08/2010 12:33:00
Why dont we just wait for MoN to become City manager and then flog Heskey for 30M , the guys love him.
20/08/2010 13:35:00
parkez, Agbonlahor will be fit soon, We have carew and weimann, delfouenso and collins jr can all do a much better job than him when fit. We have 5 better strikers + if we bring any1 in.
