Emile Heskey has revealed he would be keen on a Leicester comeback to help ease their goal woes.
The infamously goal-shy former Foxes striker is available after leaving Newcastle Jets in the Australian A-League.
Nigel Pearson’s side have not scored in 500 minutes and have slipped into the bottom three of the Premier League.
Heskey made his name with Leicester, winning the League Cup twice, before joining Liverpool in 2000.
He already has an ambassadorial role with the club but would rejoin the strugglers as a player if they asked.
“It goes without saying, I’d love to come,” said Heskey. “It is a great club that allowed me to get to the platform that I got to.
“I was an England international when I was with Leicester so that was a great achievement.”
The Foxes go to fellow strugglers QPR on Saturday winless in their last seven games and former England international Heskey, 36, insisted they can turn their form around.
“They have got a decent squad there, they just need that little pick me up, a little confidence,” he said.
“It could be anything, just a spark to get going on a run.”
