Emile Heskey: Has turned down offers but expects a new club soon
Former England striker Emile Heskey has declared himself "fit and hungry" and looking forward to finding a new club.
The 34-year-old is a free agent after leaving Aston Villa and can therefore sign a deal even though the transfer window has closed.
Heskey has turned down several offers as he waits for the right opportunity but admits he now cannot wait to get started.
"I feel as fit and hungry as I have done in a long time and have been training everyday throughout the summer," said the veteran forward, who has 62 caps for England.
"As has been reported I did receive a number of offers during the transfer window but didn't feel like any of them were the right opportunity for me at that time.
"I'm now looking forward to hopefully securing a new club over the coming days."
Heskey is reported to be attracting interest from Stoke and Norwich as well as Primera Liga side Espanyol but may be holding out for a surprise offer from former club Liverpool.
The Reds find themselves desperately short of strikers after they failed to replace Andy Carroll on transfer deadline day.
