Fee agreed with Wigan for Holt

Recommended Posts

And that''s it - "Sky Sports sources say........"  No evidence to back it up, other than apparently they''ve suspended betting on Holt going to Wigan because a load of money went on to it on Skybet in the past couple of days.

Yep, came up on the SSN yellow thingy at the bottom of the screen. Saying that talks are now to be held between Holt and Wigan, which explains why he hasnt gone to Austria.

Would be surprised if they agree terms unless we have told him we don''t want him anymore.

Great player that won''t eclipse his first prem season so anything above 2 mill and I would be happy .

All the best Holt

I would imagine, should Holt agree terms, that this will happen. I''m aware that some on here maybe in denial, but it all sort of makes sense for player and clubs. Holt will want to be playing football next season, he isnt one for bench warming. Also, its up North which is where he wants to be. I will miss him however, a huge part of our recent history. Thanks Grant and good luck.

No, Morty, I''ll believe it when ther''s something more substanstial than "Sky Ports sources say", like McNally or CH coming out with a statement. Until then, everything is just gossip and speculation, along with all the players we''re supposed to be linked with coming in.

If he goes he goes the club will still be here we will sign a replacement and the club goes on. Players come and go its the nature of the beast why all the cr@p about signings not signing or players leaving really jacks me off.

Why everyone gets so excited I will never know.

And who exactly, on this thread, is going into meltdown about this news?

Ideally what people need to do is trust the board, and specifically McNally.When he says that everything is done purely for the benefit of Norwich City Football Club, I frankly believe him. I believe we have a board, and owners,  that genuinely cares about our club, as opposed to a band of fly by night foreigners looking to make a fast buck.As has been said, players come and go, and it is the measure of a good manager / board knowing just when is the right time to offload a player.I think people are confusing nowadays with ten or fifteen years ago when as soon as we got anyone decent, he was sold. We really haven''t been that club for quite a long time now.

This Holt rubbish just isn''t going away.

I literally can''t understand why the club would want to sell its most influential player. The club captain. It doesn''t add up. It doesn''t make any sense.

Next season Holt is capable of scoring goals for us, shaking things up on pitch, winning games. Why would they let a player of his calibre leave?

Furthermore why would be want to leave only a year after finally getting his big contract? Wigan surely can''t match that. And as for his missus wanting him closer, fair enough. But I''ll bet any money she''d prefer him to earn the big bucks for a couple more years.
