thumbnail Hello,

The Canaries' club captain has made no plans to depart Carrow Road any time soon, having been linked with a move to Celtic during the January transfer window

Norwich City striker Grant Holt has rejected speculation linking him with a move away from Carrow Road and insisted he is happy at the club.

The 31-year-old handed in a transfer request at the end of last season having been named Player of the
Season for the third year running, however signed a contract extension two months later.

He has since been linked with a move to Celtic with a possible swap deal with Gary Hooper mooted, yet Holt insists his heart is still with the Canaries.

“I wanted to sign my deal last summer to let me know where I am,” Holt told reporters.

“There’s been a lot of talk [that] I’ve got this move lined up to Celtic or I’m going here or I’ve got this. If I have, no one’s told me.”

Holt relocated his family further North to Cumbria at the start of the year, which as a result fuelled the flame for further rumours he was searching for a move away to Celtic Park.

However he has insisted his career moves are influenced by footballing decisions rather than personal reasons, and signed the new deal with the intention of playing for Norwich as long as the club wants him.

He continued: “It doesn’t matter where the family are, whether they’re here or there, it’s still for football reasons and that’s why I wanted three years.

“I signed it and as long as the manager wants me here and the club want me, I’ll stay.”
