Strong in the air, the club's 2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12 Player of the Season leads the line superbly with an enormous appetite for hard work.

The City skipper scored 15 Premier League goals during the 2011/12 campaign.

Holt made club history to win the Player of the Year trophy three years running.

On July 3, 2012 he signed a new three-year deal with the Canaries.

He lies 6th in Norwich's list of all-time goalscorers with more than 70 goals.
