Hughton hoping to keep hold of Holt

Published Add your comment

New Norwich manager Chris Hughton has made it his first mission to keep hold of wantaway captain Grant Holt.

The former Birmingham boss was appointed as Paul Lambert's replace at Carrow Road after agreeing a three-year contract with the Canaries. The 53-year-old takes charge of the club days after Holt had a transfer request rejected by the board, who are determined to retain their top goalscorer.

"He is a quality player, no doubt about that," Hughton said of the 31-year-old, who scored 17 goals in the top flight last term. "With his record - to score the goals he did last season - there wouldn't be any manager coming in who wouldn't want to keep a player of that quality."
