Carlisle boss Kavanagh reveals Heskey offer

Carlisle United boss Graham Kavanagh admits he made an offer to former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey.

Heskey, 36, is a free agent after a two-year spell in Australia with Newcastle Jets, but opted not to team back up with Kavanagh.

Kavanagh, who played in the same Wigan team as Heskey, told the News & Star: "I tried to get Emile in.

"I played with him at Wigan and I know what he is all about.

"Unfortunately he turned it down as I think he wants to be playing in the Championship or going back abroad."
