Grant Holt is prepared to allow Norwich to make the ultimate decision on where his future lies.

The striker scored eight league goals this season compared to 15 in the previous campaign and there has been speculation regarding his next step.

Holt told the Pink'un: "Only the manager and the people upstairs will know if they want me to be here next year.

"I’ve got my contract and we will see how it goes from there.”

Norwich manager Chris Hughton will be the one to make the decision on Holt and Hughton believes the striker can still play a key role.

The 54-year-old said: “Grant is a player who signed a new contract in the summer and he has two years left.

"Anything you read or hear is speculation because for me it is not an issue.”

It can be argued that Holt has not been helped this year by the arrival of another English striker in the Premier League this year - Rickie Lambert.

Lambert has scored 15 league goals this season and comparisons have been made to Holt.

Chris Hughton believes it is just temporary form that has brought about the speculation around the Norwich striker.

He added: "I might be wrong but I believe he started more games this season than last season so this is someone who has been right in there playing games."

Australia is a possible destination for the striker with reports suggesting Melbourne Heart are interested in the 32-year-old although nothing official has yet been announced.
