Crystal Palace make Grant Holt enquiry

Norwich City striker Grant Holt is a target for Crystal Palace, according to the Daily Mirror. The signing of Ricky van Wolfswinkel by the Canaries ensures Holt's long term future at Carrow Road remains in some doubt.

Last year Grant Holt fell down the pecking order at the Canaries as Chris Hughton preferred to play a different lineup for most of the year, whilst the signing of Van Wolfswinkel confirms that Holt is no longer first choice for the year ahead.

Newly promoted Crystal Palace have a reported £14 million from the Wilfried Zaha sale to spend on new players, and £2 million rated Grant Holt could be their first acquisition.

With Palace forward Glenn Murray likely to miss the beginning of the Premier League season through injury, the Selhurst Park outfit are eager to bring in cover in time for the new season.
