Kevin Phillips wants to sign off his playing career with his 288th and final goal when Leicester take on Doncaster.

The 40-year-old former England international will make his final appearance for his ninth club as the Foxes celebrate promotion to the Premier League on Saturday and he says finding the back of the net would be the perfect way to sign off.

"I am known as a goalscorer and I would love to feel that one more time," he told BBC Radio Leicester. "There is no better feeling and that would be a great way to finish.

"There's a little bit of relief because I have been thinking about it for a while. When I decided to release the news even my agent was still saying "Are you sure?"

"I thought about it at the end of last season after (scoring the winner at) Wembley, but being promoted again as champions is the perfect way to go out."
