Released Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey in talks with Ipswich Town.

The Telegraph says Heskey, the former England international, has been approached by Paul Jewell and Ipswich are hopeful of completing his surprise signing this month.

The 34 year-old is a free agent after his release from Aston Villa in May and has been considering his options this summer, with Hull City and Leicester two of the clubs linked.
