Hammers Bid £4 Million For Holt

News coming from SkySports today is that West Ham have bid £4 Million to take Grant Holt from Norwich City.

The 30-year-old had a transfer request rejected last month and appears keen to bring his time at Norwich to an end despite enjoying three very good years with the club.

He helped Norwich win back to back promotions and scored 15 goals in the league in his début season in The Premiership.

Sam Allardyce sees the big striker as the perfect man to spearhead the Hammers first campaign back in the big time.

However, Paul Lamberts departure to Aston Villa could see them make a move for the 30-year old hit man.

I like Holt and he reminds me of Dean Ashton but do we really need a striker of this age as our first signing?
