FORMER LIVERPOOL STRIKER Emile Heskey is back playing in England after completing a short-term deal with Championship club Bolton, the club’s official Twitter account today confirmed.

Heskey, who scored 39 goals in 150 appearances for Liverpool and earned 62 England caps in his prime, has been without a club since leaving Australian side Newcastle Jets in August.

It was reported back in December that he was training with the club in a bid to secure a deal, and his attempts now appear to have proved successful.

The veteran attacker, who turns 37 in January, has played for a host of clubs over the course of his career, including Leicester, Aston Villa and Wigan.
