Aston Villa's Emile Heskey has not ruled out returning to Leicester City but says he is happy at Villa Park.The Leicester-born ex-England striker came through the youth ranks at his hometown club and was a crowd favourite before joining Liverpool in 2000.

Heskey told BBC Radio Leicester: "I'm okay where I am but I can't rule out a return. Leicester are a massive club.

"People ask me about it and they have some of the best facilities in the East Midlands and one of the best stadiums."

Heskey made his Leicester debut in 1995 and went on to make over 150 appearances, before an £11m move to Liverpool.

After spells with Birmingham and Wigan, the striker moved to Aston Villa in January 2000.
