EMILE Heskey has turned down the chance to sign for Blackpool.

The Pool boss wanted the ex-England international to solve his striker problems.

But after making contact with the 34-year-old, Heskey – a free agent after being released by Aston Villa – has made it clear he won’t be coming to Bloomfield Road.

“Unfortunately he has got other things in the pipeline and he is not interested in coming to us,” said Holloway. “So that is dead and buried.”
