Holt's Future At Wigan Is Uncertain


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?

Most Wigan fans would prefer Holty to get fit and play a role with Latic's , many negative comments about him are to do with his weight and his seemingly unwillingness to do anything about it. A fit, committed Holty is what Latic's fans want but few think we have any chance of getting it. I wish him luck, wherever his future may be,Wigan or not.

On behalf of most Wigan fans we hope that the answer to your final question is "Anywhere but here." He was too slow, too unfit, too lazy and too expensive at the start and it has only got worse.
