Former Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey reveals his excitement after arriving in Australia to begin his stay with the Newcastle Jets.

Emile Heskey has revealed that he is "raring to go" after arriving in Australia to begin his Newcastle Jets career.

The England international has signed a one-year deal with the A-League side and claimed that he has been given advice by former Perth Glory striker Robbie Fowler.

Heskey told the club's website: "It was a bit of a long flight, but I'm finally here and I'm raring to go.

"I spoke to Robbie Fowler and he's told me a lot about the league and everything as well.

"I'm just raring to go really. I'm looking forward to meeting the lads, having a bit of a training run with them and seeing how things go."

The Jets have been forced to order more shirts with Heskey's name printed on them after the overwhelming response from supporters.
