Villa striker Heskey willing to play anywhere for O'Neill

Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey is prepared to play anywhere to help manager Martin O'Neill.

"Obviously I'd like to score more goals," he said. "But contribution-wise I just want to carry on playing my game.

"I don't want to take anything away from that by trying to concentrate on something else. Ideally I want to bring everything together.

"Managers have sometimes asked me to play wide and I've been happy to do it.

"As a professional footballer, it's good to know other positions so if you're asked to play in a different role you can do it to the best of your ability. Hopefully I've been able to do that."
