Grant Holt set for talks over Norwich future
Friday 22 June 2012
Grant Holt will wait until he has talked with new Norwich manager Chris Hughton before deciding on his future, according to the striker's agent.
The 31-year-old, who scored 15 goals to help keep the Canaries in the Barclays Premier League, handed in a transfer request at the end of the season, which was rejected by the club.
Norwich chief executive David McNally knocked back reports newly promoted West Ham had tabled a £4million bid for the former Rochdale striker, who reiterated his desire to move on following Paul Lambert's departure to Aston Villa, which is another possible destination for the centre-forward.
However, after being appointed as manager two week's ago, Hughton insisted his "main priority" was to keep Holt at Carrow Road.
The Canaries boss is to shortly return from holiday and is then likely to sit down with the Norwich skipper to try to resolve issues, which are said to be over a contract extension.
Holt's representative Lee Payne said in the Norwich Evening News: "It is difficult to make any comment with Chris Hughton out of the country and I wouldn't want to comment either way until Chris is back."
Hughton has already moved to tie up versatile Scotland defender Russell Martin on a new deal, while midfielder Andrew Surman has also this week penned fresh terms.
