Gutted: people say Arsenal

Donttalksquit

Sick, that's how I feel!

@gordo52

Freaking gutted at the moment, it's starting to go all wrong

@speech_uk

Shocked. Stunned. Numb. And other similar words... #ncfc

@mark1603

I'm staggered. Biggest shock I've known as a City fan. Gut says this is the agent trying to up his money perhaps?

@AndyArmsby

Seriously just give him what he wants! Never thought #ncfc fans would ever have negative memories of him

@JayEastoe

Possibly searching for a larger wage? Strange one though and very unexpected.

@wmjlee

Sick

@cheesy290892

Gutted, but at the same time understandable from the big man, wants to play for a bigger club and earn more money I suspect

@soulwaxer

Just feels like Norwich are back. Always had to sell to survive, but had nobody worth selling for many years.

@Leveridge96

Shocked but if he is not happy here, he doesn't have to stay here

@Bobandbronwyn

Right cheesed off actually. However, he has been so good for us, I'll forgive him anything. #foreverholt

@canaries92

Worried, #Citylegend Anyone know what on earth's going on?! #NCFC #HoltStayPlz!

@pottsy_16

I don't think he actually wants to leave... Surely not!? Agent fancies a nice cheque maybe?

@AlexB_Bacon

I can see the appeal for him of one last big contract at a club up north. It's sad, but that's football.

@JamesStarling1

Presume it's family related. If not I feel like we've been stabbed in the back a bit after all the love we have given him

@crunchcrumble

Gutted but it could be his last chance for a big contract elsewhere. He has to think of his young family and future.

@mattsmilergunns

In Lambert we trust, what ever happens it's ok as long as Lambert stays. Obviously shocked none the less.

@StephenOrange

Knocked me for six. Totally gutted if it's true.

@dianencfcfan

Bit strange, he only signed a new contract last summer so guess until we find out his reasons it's hard to comment

@sjpodd

If it's true, we would have to understand the reasons first before we criticised, sad news if true as a Norwich fan.

@mdarrell591

I'd be gutted. Thought Holty loved it here. He's hero, best striker we have had. Come on Grant u can't leave us

@kentcanary

Who invented football agents, if that's what's behind this !! ?? True, in Grant's position I'd be hacked off re England

@joolians

I feel that Holt's actions should be respected whatever he decides to do. If he goes I hope we can get a decent price.

@edd_hind

I feel like my girlfriend has cheated on me with Fabian Wilnis.

@alwatts87

That's football at the end of the day. He'll always be a hero but next season there will be another one.

@therealtomhigh

Like a dog that's lost it's owner, a baby without its mother, fish without the chips. #LostAndAlone

@1515barney

Gutted. But if he wants away let him go.

@valtolhurst

Like I'm 15 and just got dumped all over again!! Whatever happens though, the guy is an NCFC legend!

@ncfcmegson

Wait and see. If he genuinely wants to leave the club, let him. If he wants a better deal, see what we can do.

@delboycanary

I think its a way for his agent to get him a well deserved pay rise !!

@Carlostomy

Shocked and stunned! Reaction to the other out goings or no England call up? Does he know something we don't? Other reasons?

@Ruskin92

Gutted yes, angry no. He's done a lot for us, just sheer disappointment. Nobody is bigger than the club.

@ruperthinde

Grant Holt has been massive for Norwich and Norwich have been massive for Grant Holt. Marriage made in heaven

@mattwalka

Got to think manager is probably out too. I put it down to club wiping debt giving Paul limited funds. Lack of ambition?

@stani0904

Either Holt wants more money or Lambert going to Villa is a key

@chrisdelahunty

Transfer request normally means agent has been approached. I suspect Newcastle want him.

@Luth4

Don't quite understand why? Be good to hear from Holty and not SSN!
