Wigan Athletic striker Grant Holt joins Aston Villa on loan.

Wigan Athletic can confirm that striker Grant Holt has joined Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old joins his former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert at Villa Park, having signed for Latics in the summer.

Holt scored on his Latics debut in the 4-0 opening day of the Championship season away against Barnsley, following that up at the end of August with a penalty against Middlesbrough at the DW Stadium.

Since arriving at the club, Holt has made 21 appearances in all competitions, including representing Latics in the club's first ever European campaign, with four appearances in the UEFA Europa League.

The club would like to wish Grant the very best for the rest of the season following his move to Aston Villa.
