Norwich striker Grant Holt moves to Wigan: a pie-eating match made in heaven

Wigan have completed the £2million signing of big-boned Norwich striker Grant Holt.

Having had his fill of mustard and Delia’s cooking, Holt has moved to Wigan, where residents are known as ‘pie-eaters’.

Latics boss Owen Coyle said: “This is a fantastic piece of business for us at a really good price. Grant is a proven goalscorer at every level.

“He will definitely bring something new to the table that we were missing in the squad.”

The move comes just over 12 months since Holt bid a heartfelt – and woefully written – farewell to the Canaries. Better late than never…
