The Olyroo youngster is on his way to the Netherlands today and admits he is still struggling to take it all in.

He told the Herald: "It's unbelievable. It's my dream. I could be playing Champions League next year maybe."

After a week on trial at the club, Almaar officials phoned just before Christmas to give Holland the good news.

The Jets have agreed to a transfer figure, thought to to be in excess of $650,000, and only the medical and a few points of Holland's contract are to be finalised.

Holland said: "Hopefully it is all done pretty quickly. I'm a bit anxious but more excited.

"I'm not scared. This is what I want. I want to show them I am not intimidated and can make it at that level."
