Thr 37-year-old is currently without a club having been released last summer by Australian club Newcastle Jets. The former Leicester, Liverpool and Wigan player had spent two seasons with the A-League side.

Heskey scored 46 goals in 197 games for Leicester between 1994 and 2000 before moving to Liverpool for a club-record £11million transfer. He had spells with Birmingham City, Wigan and Aston Villa before heading off to Newcastle Jets in 2012. He scored 10 goals in 42 games for the Jets before being released at the end of the 2013-14 Australian season.

Bolton look set to offer former striker Eidur Gudjohnsen a deal until the end of the season. The Iceland international, without a club since leaving Belgian side Club Brugge at the end of last season played for the Trotters in their Development Squad clash with Middlesbrough on Monday night.

However, at present the Trotters have refused to confirm Heskey’s presence with the squad.
