Heskey: Staying in Australia until 2014

Former England striker Emile Heskey has signed a new contract with A-League side Newcastle Jets which will keep him in Australia until 2014.

The 35-year-old moved Down Under in September and went on to score nine goals in 23 appearances for the Jets, earning himself a nomination for the club's Player of the Year award.

And the former Liverpool man is now looking to fire Newcastle into a top-six place next term after missing out on the finals series this season.

"I'm pleased to be extending my stay in Newcastle for another year," he told the Jets' official website.

"Everyone has made me feel very welcome here and I've really enjoyed my first season playing for the Jets.

"I'm looking forward to getting a full pre-season under my belt and helping the team push for a finals place next season."

Head coach Gary van Egmond is delighted to have Heskey back on board and is sure his experience will prove a major asset.

"It's great to have Emile here for another season," he said.

"He brings a wealth of experience to our squad with everything he's achieved in his career.

"His performances in his first season with us were excellent and we're looking forward to seeing more of the same from him next year."
