Grant Holt: Ready for new challenge at Wigan

Grant Holt: Ready for new challenge at Wigan

The experienced striker has ended his four-year association with Norwich to sign a three-year deal at the DW Stadium after Wigan paid an undisclosed fee.

Norwich's capture of Ricky van Wolfswinkel has increased competition for places at Carrow Road and Holt now wants to focus on helping Wigan to return to the Premier League,

"I think it's the right move at the right time," Holt told Sky Sports News.

"I had been at Norwich for four fantastic years and it's the right time to go. Everyone knows I've got family up the road and that was a little part of my decision.

"But it was more to do with a new challenge and I know my games would be a bit more limited with the new signings coming in at Norwich.

"To go and have a new challenge, I thought Wigan was the perfect opportunity.

"It doesn't matter where you are, you just enjoy playing football and I want to do my best and be successful.

"Obviously, Wigan have come down and my job now is to get in here, get in as quick as I can, meet the lads, get in with the manager and get this club back up to the Premier League."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
