Holmes, who joined the English Premier League club three years ago, is only 19. The Sydneysider signed a new two and a half year deal in February tieing him to the Cherries until June 2019.

Despite his young age, Holmes feature on the bench for Bournemouth's first-team several times last season, including on a trip to Old Trafford.

The Young Socceroo has featured regularly for the club's Under-21s squad but is hoping to go on loan again in the pursuit of tougher game-time. Last season Holmes went out loan to Weymouth Town in the conference Southern Premier.

A former junior with Rockdale City Suns and the NSW Institute of Sport, the keeper joined the Cherries as a 16-year old on a scholarship. Bournemouth start their Premier League campaign this weekend at home against Manchester United.

"I'm enjoying pre-season at the moment," he told FourFourTwo.

"It's been quite hard and I can't wait to continue to train and then eventually play when the season starts."

Holmes said he has spoken to Cherries boss Eddie Howe about him getting a loan move this season.

"[That's my goal] to go on loan and hopefully be on the bench for a League Cup or FA Cup match," he said.

"He would like to send me out on loan, but I'm not sure on what club yet."
