Emile Heskey is reportedly training with Bolton Wanderers in an effort to earn a deal and continue his playing career at the Macron Stadium.
Heskey is 37 in January but reluctant to retire despite being released by the A-League’s Newcastle Jets last summer.
The former England international went on BT Sport earlier in the season in an attempt to put himself in the shop window – the results of which can be seen in the video below.
With 36-year-old Eidur Gudjohnsen also in talks with Bolton – manager Neil Lennon could potentially name striking duo with a combined age of 73 come 2015.
On the plus side, they would have 140 international caps between them.
