Emile Heskey has reportedly turned down the opportunity to join Championship club Blackpool.

The former England international was released by Aston Villa at the end of last season and is on the hunt for a new club but has rejected the chance to head to Bloomfield Road.

Seasiders boss Ian Holloway confirmed to reporters that 34-year old forward Heskey was not interested in playing for Blackpool.

"Unfortunately he has got other things in the pipeline and he is not interested in coming to us. So that is dead and buried," he said.
