Signed from Norwich City ahead of the 2013-14 season, Grant Holt boasts an impressive CV through the Football League.

Holt progressed through the youth ranks at local side Carlisle United before joining Barrow where he impressed enough to earn a deal with Sheffield Wednesday.

Spells with Rochdale, Nottingham Forest, Blackpool and Shrewsbury Town followed before a move to Norwich City saw the Cumbrian frontman fulfil his potential.

A record of 78 goals in 168 games at Carrow Road helped the Canaries from League One to the Premier League and prompted Latics to secure his signature.

Holt’s debut season saw him score twice in 20 appearances before he spent the second-half of the campaign on loan at Aston Villa in the Premier League where he made ten appearances, scoring once.
