Emile Heskey has today extended his current deal with Bolton, keeping him with the club until the end of the season.

Heskey joined Bolton Wanderers on Christmas Eve and scored a goal on his debut for the club in their 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers on Boxing Day.

The 37-year old has made 10 appearances for the club, so far, and when questioned about what the future holds for the former England international, Neil Lennon said: “He’s signed an extension as his contract was only up until the end of this month,” Lennon said.

“We’ve extended that until the end of the season and we’ll sit down and have a chat with him once everything is through.

“What a player he is. There were a lot of raised eyebrows when we brought him in but if you look at his individual performances they are very, very good for a guy of his age and he leads the line brilliantly.”
