Grant Holt was reunited with former boss Paul Lambert when he signed for Villa in the January transfer window of 2014.

Holt enjoyed three magnificent years at Norwich under Lambert, winning the club's player of the year on each occasion.

He also earned a place in the Canaries hall of fame in 2012 for his exploits in East Anglia.

Holt helped Norwich to successive promotions from League One to the Premier League.

He scored 21 goals as they went up from the Championship and he was a pivotal figure in that first campaign in the top-flight, bagging 15 goals.

In total he scored 23 goals in 70 Premier League games in yellow and green.

The 32-year-old forward joined the Latics in the summer for around £2m from Norwich but only scored twice as injuries hampered his progress.

His move to the Midlands was an ideal opportunity to work again with the boss he said he'd have followed anywhere.
