The 37-year-old ex-Norwich City striker has agreed a deal to fight for World Association of Wrestling.

The British promotion confirmed they had agreed a deal with Holt on Twitter.

They wrote: "Wow @Grantholt31 will be in action at waw supershow."

Holt is currently the player-coach at National League side Barrow.
