Future of CSKA Moscow's Honda still up in the air

CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda is still no closer to learning where the next phase of his playing career will take place.

The 24-year old, who is currently on national team duty with Japan at the Asian Cup, has been heavily linked with a move away from Moscow in recent months with big European clubs such as Arsenal, Liverpool and AC Milan showing considerable interest.

His agent, Kees Ploegsma, is sending a representative to Qatar to hold talks with Honda in the hope that a deal can be done some time in the winter transfer market.

"Several clubs have confirmed their interest," Pleogsma told

"My son is going to Qatar tomorrow to have a number of meetings. But, we will have to wait and see who is seriously interested in Keisuke (Honda). You never know.

"Time is going fast in the window. I really hope something can happen, but I don't know. As I said my son has a number of meetings, but so far nothing is concrete, we must wait and see."
