Just what does Grant Holt think he's going to achieve by handing in a transfer request?
Realistically a top 6/7 side isn't going to want him, and even the teams that might show a slight interest in him (the Villas, West Broms, Fulhams of this world) aren't going to be able to cough up the over-inflated transfer fee that Norwich would undoubtedly ask for him.
Some people are linking it to the speculation surrounding Lambert's future at the club. Perhaps it's a warning sign? Perhaps Lambert leaving is further along than we know and Holt has some sort of 'understanding' that Lambert try and sign him for whoever he goes to?
Or perhaps he just needs a new challenge/change of scenery.
I don't think it's a coincidence that he has just missed out on the England squad. Probably wants one last shot at getting a game for his country...you're more likely to get picked as a Villa player than as a Norwich player, even if Norwich are the better team right now. (Not saying Villa will get him, just using them as an example of a bigger/more established/more fashionable club)
Can't see it working myself, I think (or at least hope) the onus will be on getting the younger players into the squad after the Euros.
