WhoScored: Liverpool scoring woes solved?

Holt requests transfer

Norwich City striker Grant Holt has had a transfer request rejected by the club, following a season in which he scored 15 Premier League goals.

Holt, 31, was omitted from the England squad for Euro 2012 earlier this week, having finished the season as the second top-scoring English striker in the league.

On Friday, though, Holt has shocked his employers by handing-in a transfer request which was swiftly rejected. The striker joined Norwich from Shrewsbury in 2009, for a reported fee of £400,000.

Holt's consistent supply of goals were a big reason behind the Canaries rise to the Premier League, firing his side to consecutive promotions from League 1 and then the Championship.

The news follows speculation linking manager Paul Lambert with a move away from the club, with the Scot linked with the vacant managerial positions at Aston Villa and Liverpool.
