Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has paid tribute to former club captain Grant Holt after his sale to Wigan Athletic.

Confirmation of the Holt deal has come on the same day that frontman Arouna Kone's transfer from the Latics to Everton was announced.

Hughton told canaries.co.uk: "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 (last summer) 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."
