Holman To Al Nasr

Holman To Al Nasr

It's being reported in the press that Brett Holman will arrive in Dubai on Friday to sign a two year deal with Al Nasr.

The National.ae carry quotes from Fahad Hadi who is apparently on the board of the club, and he says:

'Brett represents a strong signing for us as he's an international player who has played in England, one of the top leagues in Europe. He has the qualities that we needed at Al Nasr and, most importantly, he has a lot of experience. It's good to have someone with that knowledge in our squad, and he will only improve the team.'

It's expected that Holman will sign a two year deal at the club and if all goes well, Al Nasr expect to announce his arrival to the press on Saturday.

Bit surprised thought he'd stay on as a squad player and would have a role to play but obviously not... While he did little wrong and gave 100% he's no loss look at the club thats signing him...

Obviously he needs to play to keep himself in the Aussie World Cup squad. Also obvious he wouldn't be playing at Villa after stating the obvious back in January. Good luck Brett thank you for those couple of great goals.

I liked him as a squad player, but got fed up with his moaning. It was inevitable he would leave, so one more down!

I'm very surprised he's dropping down to this level though? I would've thought maybe a Palace or a Hull would have taken him in a heartbeat - particularly given we got him free, so probably very little fee involved and his wages wouldn't have been that high? He's worried about getting playing time to put himself in the window for World Cup squad selection - and yet he's moving to Dubai?? Go figure!?

Not surprised by this. Australia secured qualification on Wednesday so I expected he'd move on soon after to ensure he gets as much playing time as possible prior to the world cup. I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Herd looked for a move too - he's made no secret of his desire to force his way into the Socceroos squad. He's a solid mulit-position squad player though so I personally hope we keep hold of him.

@Yatesy, most of the Aussie squad play in the Australian, middle east, Dutch or German leagues so it's a good place to be for him. In fact his fellow socceroo Mark Bresciano is already at Al Nasar which has no doubt influenced this decision.

A mediocre player at best. Shall not be missed.

I appreciated his work rate but his form, a little like El Ahmadi, went out of the window around October. Solid worker but lacked the cutting edge we need. At least he had a go. Good luck to him.

Poor player, ran round like a headless chicken. He had a go so good luck to him in Dubai.

has there been any mention of the fee. it would be nice to know we at least turned a profit on him. even if the fee was just enough to have covered what we paid in wages for the last 12 months it would be a nice bit of business
