Vassell pleased to be back on home turf with Leicester

Former England international Darius Vassell is delighted to be back playing football after an interesting spell with Turkish side Ankaragucu. The 30-year-old forward came off the bench to help his side to a 2-0 win against Barnsley on Saturday.

Vassell signed a two-year deal in October, reuniting him with his former England and Manchester City mentor Sven-Goran Eriksson.

He told the club's official website: "It was great to back on the pitch. It had been a long time, and to see the lads all buzzing showed how much I had missed it all.

"It was nice to be part of that again. If I can maintain that and hopefully put some balls in the back of the net to gain a place, that would be nice."
