“I'm here to help them and I'll do all I can to help them”
"The primary objective is to play. That's what I've wanted to do. Unfortunately the opportunities haven't been rife out there."
The former England striker, who has not scored a first-team goal since October 2009, continued: "The market's very tough and there are a lot of pros out of football at this moment in time.
"I saw this as a challenge. The primary objective is to get back playing and get some minutes under my belt, but then if I can help the coaching staff here, who have been great in accepting me, that will be a bonus.
"It's a great opportunity for me to get back playing and to have the first footsteps on the ladder to coaching."
