Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has paid tribute to departing captain Grant Holt after the striker joined Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal.

Hughton told the club's official website: 'Grant was an important part of what we managed to achieve in the Barclays Premier League last season.

'Of course before I came to the club I was very aware of the magnificent job he had already done in the three years prior to that as well.

'When we look back I'm sure we will all agree that to score the amount of goals he has done for the club in that time is a remarkable achievement.

'Myself and all of the staff certainly wish him all the best for his time at Wigan.'
