Latics replace Kone with Holt.Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of Norwich City striker Grant Holt for an undisclosed fee, Sky Sports reports.

The 32-year-old has agreed a three year deal with the FA Cup winners and has become new boss Owen Coyle’s seventh signing of the season in the process.

And Coyle expressed his delight at being able to bring someone on board quickly to replace Arouna Kone, who joined former manager Roberto Martinez at Everton last week.

“This is a fantastic piece of business for us at a really good price,” Coyle told the club’s official website.

“Grant is a proven goalscorer at every level and he will definitely bring something new to the table that we were missing in the squad.

“There is already a great buzz about the place since the new boys have started coming through the door and this is another one that will really lift the place.

“He’s been a hero to the fans at every club he’s been and I know the Norwich fans are sad to see him go, he’s been one of the icons of their success in recent years. But now it’s the Wigan fans’ turn to enjoy him and we’re all delighted he’s coming on board.”
