Emile Heskey admits he would jump at the chance of joining former club Leicester in the Premier League.

The 36 year-old hasn't played since April when his two years with Newcastle Jets came to an end, but insists he's "fit enough" should Nigel Pearson come calling.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leicester, Heskey said:

"It goes without saying, I'd love to come. 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."

Leicester have failed to score a goal in their last five matches.

Full time - Aston Villa 1-1 Southampton

In tonight's Premier League action, Aston Villa drew 1-1 at home to Southampton.

Gabriel Agbonlahor put Villa in front in the first half, after a mistake from England goalkeeper Fraser Forster let him through on goal.

And it looked like earning Villa a valuable victory, but Nathaniel Clyne - fresh from his England debut last weekend - fired in an equaliser late on.

Villa climb to 16th.

The striker, who played for Bolton, Hull and West Brom, is alleged to have committed the offence by offering financial advantage to others, including professional footballers, in November 2013.

Officers from the National Crime Agency charged Facey in September as part of what they described as an ongoing match-fixing investigation.

The 34-year-old was bailed to appear for trial at the same court on April 13 next year.
