Norwich City legend, Grant holt faces an uncertain future at Wigan after being left behind during pre-season training as the ‘Latics’ first team head to Germany.
Holt left City last summer for a fee of around £2m and headed north to ply his trade closer to his family home. I don’t think any of us begrudged him that but few wanted him to leave, among the City faithful.
Fast forward 12 months and his fortunes have changed. Social media suggests that many Wigan fans think they have bought a donkey and would be prepared to give him away.
Holty still has 2 years left at Wigan and is reportedly the highest wage at the DW. So much so, that the rumours are abounding that Wigan would consider letting him go for free to shift his huge salary.
Owen Coyle bought him and he was soon sacked. Use Rosler gave Holt plenty of chances and spoke about him initially as ‘a focal point’ to build his Wigan side around – Holt couldn’t make it happen though and ended up moving on loan to Aston Villa in January where he made 7 appearances and scored just one goal.
What next for Grant Holt – bone fide Norwich City legend?
