The highly-rated 20-year-old will have a chance to impress scouts when he lines up for Scotland's U21 side against their England counterparts at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night.

Holt was linked with a move to Nottingham Forest earlier in the summer but he stayed loyal to the Tynecastle side despite their financial problems meaning they could have cashed in on him.

"Everyone knows how good the leagues are down in England," Holt said. "One day I think any player would like to play down here at one point.

"We all know it is a massive league, but I can't speak for everyone else."

Holt has five of his team-mates alongside him in the Scotland squad and he says they cannot wait to get into their English opponents ahead of a European Championship qualifier against Holland.

He added: "Holland will be a massive game but you won't get a better game for preparation playing against a good-quality England side. All the boys are buzzing for the game."

The game comes on the back of a massive win over Edinburgh rivals Hibs which Holt hopes will kick-start their Scottish Premiership season after they started with a 15-point deduction for going into administration.

"We're delighted with the result against Hibs - it doesn't come much better than that, a derby win," Holt said.

"Just to repay the fans for all the hard work they have put in, and the club as a whole, we're all delighted.

"Hopefully this can kickstart the season. We all know it is going to be a challenge but all the players are up for that challenge."

o make it more fair, we should remove the requirements to score goals and not to concede goals. Then we could just spin and dance and leap and twirl and we'd never have to grow up! We'd be the bestest evar!

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)
