Emile Ivanhoe Heskey Rides Out Of Town

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.

He'll probably sign for Sunderland heared they offered for him in Jan as well as our SKD (which was a disgusting 250000 bid)

How will we manage to replace his goal? Maybe we need to be looking at the guy from Crewe who is meant to be a great AM and maybe even take a chance on Rhodes from Huddersield. Cant be big fees or wages and is about the best way we can recruit...

so nearly a brilliant footballer. physically Heskey had everything, and I often wonder if he was played out of position for his entire career. perhaps he will go back to Leicester and discover that he is really a natural centre half.

Well, he's first. He can drive the minibus. Lets see, who we have as passengers.... ah yes, Mutton, Collins, Dunney, Delfouneso, Guzan (apparently) then we have Idiot, Grant and Faulkner.... quite a full minibus I'd say. Any room on top?

Another "if only" moment in Villa's history, if only MON had signed Bent instead of Heskey. His goals at the time would have secured us CL qualification I'm sure. Oh well, good luck Emile. To be fair to the guy he usually puts a shift in even if he spends way to long on his backside.

I wish Emile the best of luck. He always tried to do what was asked of him. All the best for the future.

Agreed. All the best to Emile. despite his obvious lack of goals ALWAYS gave 100%..In fact the last three matches, when we really needed him, he has put on three of his best performances in a Villa shirt. Time for all parties to move on.. Thanks Emile and good luck

What a loss! I will no longer be able to excuse myself from watching the match to go shopping with my wife because he's playing. Never mind. Bound to be plenty more ECKscuses including waiting for the Mutton to cook, having one-on-one practice with Gabby, PASSING time with Collins and Dunne, ....

The effort he has put into the last few games was what we needed and what we need from everyone all next season.
