Holt: 'I had four unbelievable years'

Holt: 'I had four unbelievable years'
Grant Holt has been speaking to the press about his reasons for signing for Wigan Athletic.

'The Europa League was a massive pull for me,' Holt told BBC Radio Cumbria.

'It's something I've never done in my career and I'm hoping we can have a good spell in that.'

Holt, 32, agreed a three-year contract to become new Wigan manager Owen Coyle's seventh summer signing, clearly the lure of a longer contract and a move closer to home proved impossible to resist.

However, he admitted he had left Carrow Road with a heavy heart.

'It's hard to leave Norwich because I've had four unbelievable years there. It's tough to leave but I was ready for a new challenge,' added the former Nottingham Forest and Shrewsbury forward.

'This is a great move for me. I've got a three-year deal with a club that wants to get back into the Premier League and a lot of people know I've been keen to get back up north as I've got older.

'Hopefully at some point, we'll either get them [Norwich] in the cup or we'll go up and we'll play them in the Premier League, so I can get the chance to go back and hopefully I'll get a good welcome.'

Little doubt you'll get a good welcome, Holty. You're welcome here anytime, it'd be nice for the crowd to be able to show their appreciation.
