U's Set For Wrong Holt

Colchester United have taken midfielder Gary Holt on trial, while striker transfer-target Grant Holt is on the verge of a move to Norwich City.

U's chief Paul Lambert has handed former Wycombe Wanderers midfielder Holt, 36, a chance to impress tonight. The former Scottish international will feature for the U's at Heybridge Swifts later this evening.

After versatile midfield-man Johnnie Jackson slapped in a transfer request yesterday, click here, Holt could be seen as a replacement.

Meanwhile, another Holt, this being Grant, is close to completing a transfer to the U's League One rivals Norwich.

Earlier this summer, the U's had a 250,000 bid rejected for the Shrewsbury Town ace, and boss Lambert appears to have accepted defeat in his chase. Holt, himself, also committed his future to the Shrews but now looks set to make an exit.

If Holt seals his move to Carrow Road, he could feature against the U's on the season's opening day.


So is Lambert mixing up his Holt's?
