Villa complete Holt loan

By Football News

Aston Villa have completed the loan signing of Grant Holt from Wigan Athletic until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old forward previously impressed in the Premier League for Norwich City under the guidance of current Villa boss Paul Lambert.

Holt joined Wigan from Norwich in the close season, but has found games and goals hard to come by for the Championship outfit, scoring just twice in nine league starts and seven substitute appearances.
