Australia international James Holland joins LASK Linz on a free transfer

Fringe Socceroos midfielder James Holland has put his China troubles behind him, agreeing a return to the Austrian Bundesliga with recently-promoted LASK Linz.

Holland has been clubless since he and Socceroos attacker Robbie Kruse terminated their contracts with Chinese Super League side Liaoning Whowin last month due to unpaid wages.

Former Adelaide United man Holland made just one appearance in his four months at Liaoning, but now looks set for more game time in a familiar league where he's experienced success.

The 28-year-old, who won the 2013 Bundesliga title during his three seasons with Austria Wien, has signed a two-year deal with LASK, promoted after winning the second division by 17 points.

"I am looking forward to returning to the Austrian Bundesliga after three years," Holland to the club's website.

"With my experience, I would like to help LASK achieve their next goals."

The 15-times capped Holland hasn't played for the Socceroos since 2013 but last year said he still harboured international ambitions.
