Aston Villa have confirmed Brett Holman's contract has been terminated mutually.

The Australia international midfielder joined on a free transfer from AZ Alkmaar a year ago and played 27 times in Villa's Premier League campaign last season.

However, Al Nasr have expressed their interest in the 29-year-old, who is now expected to finalise a move to the United Arab Emirates club.

A statement on Villa's official website tonight read: "The club can confirm that Brett Holman's contract has been terminated by mutual consent."
