Australian international prepared to leave Villa.
Aston Villa midfielder Brett Holman has restated his desire to play more regular first team football as the clock ticks down to the start of the World Cup, Sky Sports reports.
The 29-year-old signed for the Villans whilst they were still under the stewardship of Alex McLeish, but the Scot had been relieved of his duties by the time he arrived at the club. He found playing time difficult to come by as the season progressed and as Paul Lambert continues to make his early assault on the transfer market, Holman has admitted that he may have to move on if he hopes to be a part of Australia’s World Cup campaign.
He realises that he can’t have a similar campaign to the last, but has also insisted that he won’t be looking to force a move either.
“Considering what happens after Tuesday night and, obviously if we get a win, I’ll have to look at the best place where I’ll play football,” he said from Australia’s training camp.
“I have to be playing to be fit. If that’s at Villa then so be it, if not, then so be it as well.
“I’ve still got two more years at Villa, so it’s not as if I’m in a panic situation where I’m looking for a club and I’m desperately looking to get out.
“We’ll just see what happens next season.”
