He had a keen eye for scoring goals, but now Dion Dublin will be able to focus on his other love - property.

The ex-England striker has been named as a new presenter of the BBC's popular morning TV show Homes Under The Hammer.

The 45-year-old, who played for Manchester United, Coventry and Aston Villa, will join Martin Roberts and Lucy Alexander for the 19th series.

"I still want to achieve. I want to learn the art of presenting," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I sat down with Lucy and Martin, who gave me words of advice."

The four-times capped England international started playing in 1988 and retired 20 years later.

Dublin, who invented an instrument called a dube, was asked if he will have an influence on the music used in the show. "I've put a lot of CDs on the desk of the series producer."
