Aston Villa's Emile Heskey says he is enjoying his new utility role with the club.
The 33-year-old has spent most of his career playing up front, but has operated in wide left and central midfield roles for Villa this season.
The former England player, who retired from international football after the 2010 World Cup, admits playing out of position is a new challenge.
Heskey said: "It's going well. I am playing in a few different positions. I am really enjoying it. I am enjoying football - that's the key.
"That's the big thing when you get to my age where you're coming towards the tail-end of your career. I intend on enjoying every moment out there because when it's gone, it's gone.
"It's not an instinctive thing. You have to think all the time in central midfield. When I'm up front, I don't have to think, I just do."
