The 36-year-old striker, who will wear shirt number 29, goes straight into the squad for Wednesday's South Yorkshire derby clash against Barnsley at Hillsborough on Saturday.

Howard began his career with Hartlepool in August 1995 and made 164 appearances for the Pools, scoring 32 goals, before joining Northampton Town in February 1999.

However, it was at Luton Town where Howard made his name, making over 200 appearances and scoring 96 goals in a five-year spell at Kenilworth Road.

Derby County was Howard's next club in July 2006 - the forward signing a three-year deal for a fee of £1m - before a £1.5m move to Leicester in January 2008.

Howard was named as Leicester's Player of the Year for the 2008-9 season before re-joining League One Hartlepool in the summer of 2012.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
