Jordan On Standby

5 September 2013

Defender Jordan Holt has been placed on the standby list for the Wales Under-21s, after impressing in the development squad.

Holt has already represented Wales at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-19 levels and is prepared in the case of a call-up.

Wales Under-21s face two UEFA European Qualifiers during the international break, against San Marino and Moldova respectively. 

Holt, 19, feels that being with Notts County gives him a good platform to break into the international squad. 

He explained: “It’s great to be on standby and I’ve been looking forward to the qualifiers.

"But, not having a club in the summer I wasn’t expecting anything. 

“Last year I was up in Scotland and the coaches couldn’t really come and see me but being down here is a lot better. 

“You never know who’s watching but I’m really enjoying life here at Notts County.

"It’s a good start and hopefully I will make an appearance for the Under-21s at some stage. 

“My main aim here has been to settle in, play well, catch the manager’s eye and try to get into the first team squad.” 

Andre Boucaud (Trinidad & Tobago) and Mustapha Dumbuya (Sierre Leone) are currently away on international duty and are in line to feature over the coming days.

Greg Tempest will not feature for the Northern Ireland Under-21s due to a calf injury.
