Grant Holt: 'Defensive tactics reason for Norwich departure'

Wigan Athletic forward Grant Holt claims that Norwich City's defensive tactics forced him to look for a move away from the club this summer.

Grant Holt has revealed that Norwich City's defensive tactics were a big reason behind his departure this summer.

The striker, who joined Wigan Athletic in July for £2m, claims that he wasn't enjoying himself due to Chris Hughton's style of play.

"I think everyone could see I wasn't the person I was for the past three years," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"On a matchday I wasn't enjoying the way we were playing - we were set up more defensively.

"I was still enjoying being at the club but I wasn't enjoying the tactics."

Holt scored just eight goals for the Canaries last season.
