Canaries: No Hammers bid for Holt

Published Add your comment

Norwich have denied reports that West Ham have bid £4million for wantaway striker Grant Holt.

The 31-year-old this week reaffirmed his desire to leave Carrow Road and has been linked with a host of clubs including the Hammers, Sunderland and Aston Villa following ex-Canaries boss Paul Lambert's appointment as Villa manager.

Reports on Sunday morning claimed West Ham had made the first move with a firm bid for Holt, who scored 15 Barclays Premier League goals last season. But Norwich chief executive David McNally quickly denied the speculation, writing on Twitter: "Just for the record, we have not received a £4m bid for Grant from West Ham as apparently is being suggested."
