Grant Holt: Paul Lambert says Norwich striker can gain England selection whilst at Canaries
Grant Holt does not have to move to a bigger club in order to get England recognition, according to Norwich manager Paul Lambert.
The Canaries boss believes his striker has found the perfect stage to showcase his talent, and refutes suggestions that Holt could have been heading for Euro 2012 if he was plying his trade elsewhere.
The man who netted 17 goals in 38 appearances this season handed in a transfer request after being omitted by Roy Hodgson but Lambert is confident he will stay at Carrow Road.
He said: "This club fit Grant and vice-versa - he has been brilliant for this club and that should never be underestimated.
"If he wasn't at Norwich he might not have made the England squad, he might not have scored 17 goals.
"From our point of view Grant has been brilliant for Norwich and vice-versa and if he keeps playing the way he has next year you just don't know
"Roy has got to pick what he feels is the best squad and team for England and people have got to respect that."
