Grant Holt still wants out at Norwich City

NORWICH CITY striker Grant Holt has reiterated his desire to leave the Carrow Road club, in what is another blow for the Canaries.

City saw their manager Paul Lambert offer his resignation yesterday, something they refused, and the Scot, who guided them from League One to the top-flight, is expected to be named the next Aston Villa boss.

Holt had a transfer request rejected by the club last month after a successful debut season in the Premier League which saw the former Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday striker plunder 15 goals and force his way into contention for an England place at Euro 2012.

The 31-year-old striker said on Twitter: “Just to stop the rumour mill again. I have expressed to the board and the CEO that I want to leave the football club. Due to disagreements.

“I have loved my three years at the club and it sadness (sic) me to right (sic) this but want use (sic) to here (sic) it from me first.”

Norwich have refused to comment on Holt’s latest outburst but his agent Lee Payne has stressed his desire to leave is not motivated by money.

Payne claimed Holt had a number of grievances with the actions of the board in the closing weeks of the season, something the Norwich hierarchy denied.
