Holman's future 'a little bit cloudy'
After Wednesday’s President’s Cup final, the 31-year-old 2010 World Cup hero is out of contract after two years at the Dubai club.
Talks between the two parties are yet to commence and Holman told The National that left him uncertain.
“The future is a little bit cloudy, so there’s no point getting carried away now in the next three days,” Holman said.
“We’ll get the final over and done with, sit down and see where I’m at next year.”
The Bankstown-born attacking midfielder would be a welcome addition to any A-League club given his pedigree after previous stints at Aston Villa and AZ Alkmaar.
Holman hasn’t played club football in Australia since spells with Northern Spirit and Parramatta Power in the early 2000s.
He has never publicly stated an allegiance to any A-League club and FourFourTwo understands there may be interest in Holman from other clubs in the UAE and Qatar.
The attacking midfielder spent a decade in the Netherlands, where he excelled at AZ Alkmaar and was a star man for the Socceroos at the 2010 World Cup, scoring two goals
Holman made a major switch to the English Premier League in mid-2012 by joining Aston Villa, but only lasted one season before heading to the Middle East.
He retired from international football in April 2014 after regularly being overlooked for Australia selection by new coach Ange Postecoglou.
