Holland Jets out to complete AZ Alkmaar move

Newcastle Jets midfielder James Holland flew out to Holland yesterday for an AZ Alkmaar medical. The Jets have accepted a bid of around AUS$650,000 from AZ for Holland, who will sign with the Dutch club upon passing medical tests.

"Hopefully it is all done pretty quickly," Holland told the Newcastle Herald. "They resume training on January 7 after a 10-day break.

"I'm a bit anxious but more excited.

"The fact I have been there and had a look at the place helps. I'll go in full bore. I'm not scared. This is what I want.

"I'm not afraid to kick some people if I have to. I want to show them I am not intimidated and can make it at that level."
