According to reports, Adelaide United have entered negotiations with Socceroo James Holland in a bid to bring the midfielder back to Australia.

Fox Sports journalist Daniel Garb confirmed the A-League Champions are in negotiations with the 27-year-old who's been released from Bundesliga 2 club MSV Duisberg.

Holland played for the Newcastle Jets between 2007-2009 and has been in Europe ever since playing in the Netherlands and Germany.

The midfielder made his Socceroos debut in 2008 and has represented Australia 15 times at senior level.

If Adelaide were to sign Holland it would be their second major signing in as many weeks after acquiring Sergi Guardiola on loan from Granada in the Spanish La Liga just last week.
