The prospect of Grant Holt returning to Carrow Road with Huddersfield Town is looking increasingly likely.

The former Canaries captain, whose 78 goals in four seasons ensured his legendary status with City supporters, is currently on loan at Huddersfield from Wigan.

The big centre-forward has so far proved he can still be an influential performer in the Championship at the age of 33 during his times with the Tykes.

He has scored once in five games for Huddersfield so far but has helped his temporary club win three and draw two of those matches.

Holt's current loan deal expires on November 8 but it seems Huddersfield boss Chris Powell is keen to extend that deal, with his side due to travel to Carrow Road on Saturday, December 13.

'Myself, chairman (Dean Hoyle) and (football operations director) Ross Wilson have talked about Grant,' Powell told the Huddersfield Examiner.

'They know how I feel about Grant and what he has brought to the team. We are really happy about what he has done and the impact he has made.

'But the situation is a little bit out of our hands. He is not our player. There is a lot to do before we are able to extend the agreement.

'There's what Wigan would like to do, and what Grant would like to do. What we can do is make this a nice happy home for him.'

Holt has faced City once since being sold in the summer of 2013, while on loan at Paul Lambert's Aston Villa last season, but has not yet played at the home of the Canaries.

'He is playing matches, which is what he wanted, and enjoying himself,' Powell continued.

'I am sure our fans will want him here to the end of the season. But we will have to tread lightly and see where it takes us.'
