Heskey keen to stay at Bolton

The 37-year-old forward was brought to Wanderers by old Leicester team-mate Neil Lennon back in December and he enjoyed a dream debut by coming off the bench to score in a derby win over Blackburn.

Although that remains his only goal for the Trotters, both he and fellow veteran Eidur Gudjohnsen have been important figures for Lennon’s injury-hit side and the Northern Irishman has previously spoken of a desire to keep the pair at the Macron Stadium next term.

And Heskey has confirmed he would be willing to extend his career by another season.

“I’d love to stay for another year, definitely,” he told local journalists after Saturday’s loss to Norwich.

“I’ve enjoyed it. The lads have taken to me really well, I feel at home and I’ve got a great feeling for the club and the legs feel good.

“I’ve played for so long it’s about the enjoyment and putting on that shirt and every week I enjoy that.”
