Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish will address the future of Emile Heskey in the summer and hinted the veteran striker's form will have a bearing on his decision.

Heskey, who has been linked with a move to former club Leicester, will return to the Villa squad for Sunday's FA Cup clash at Arsenal after a spell on the sidelines with an Achilles problem.

The current contract of the former England player runs out in May, and McLeish said: "We realise that this is a transitional period at the club so it is not right for us to make any quick decisions. The overall position is that we'll review things at the end of the season."
