Heskey set to stay at Aston Villa

Aston Villa caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald insists Emile Heskey is not set to make a return to Leicester.

Reports have linked Heskey with a return to the club where he started his career, but MacDonald insists the former England striker is part of the plans at Villa.

“I worked with Emile as a young boy at Leicester and I’ve got a lot of time for him,” said MacDonald.

“I’ve not had any talks with Leicester.

“I live quite close to Leicester so I know quite a few of the people there and there has been nothing at all.

“I think Emile Heskey is a very, very good footballer. You don’t play as often as he did for England if you are not a good player.”

MacDonald added: “In my opinion, he has been a top player for a long time. You don’t play for Liverpool  and win trophies if you are not a good player.

“Aston Villa need as many good players as they can and then to develop some other ones as well.”
