Hasselbaink baffled by Foxes snub
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink
Hasselbaink's career has taken him to Leeds, Chelsea and Middlesbrough
Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink says he is still looking for a new club after his medical with Leicester fell through.

The striker, 35, travelled to Leicester on Monday but Foxes manager Martin Allen withdrew the medical at the last minute, ending any hopes of a deal.

"I arrived at the training ground but for some reason he (Martin Allen) said he could not do the medical at that time," explained Hasselbaink.

"I'm a free agent and will just keep going," added the former Chelsea ace.

"I am training very hard to get fit. Obviously I would love to play in the Premier League but I would not want to play for someone who could be relegated.

"I would go to a Championship club who has ability to go up and who is playing for something."

Hasselbaink was released by Charlton at the end of last season, following The Addicks's relegation from the Premier League.

Allen reportedly pulled the medical because he had requested the Dutchman undertake a month-long trial before signing a deal.
