Young Bournemouth goalkeeper Jordan Holmes says he might need to go out on loan to boost his international chances for Australia.

The 20-year-old has impressed for the Cherries' Under-21s this year and is hoping to continue to develop, eventually pushing for a first-team place on the south coast.

Holmes also has designs on becoming a future full international with the Socceroos and has not ruled out making the squad for next year's World Cup in Russia - even though he's well below Brighton keeper Mat Ryan, Getafe's Mitchell Langerak and Genk keeper Danny Vukovic in the pecking order as things stand.

"It is a bit far-fetched but anything is possible," he said when asked about his international aims in the Daily Echo.

"You never know. If there were a few injuries and I was playing well and regularly, there could be an outside chance (of being in the World Cup squad).

"It is a big dream but you just have to hope you get everything in place to make yourself available for selection."

Holmes knows he must first try and establish himself in the Under-23s for his country and admits a more realistic aim is to be in goal for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, while he admits a loan move away from Bournemouth could be needed to secure regular first-team action so he can showcase his talent.

He added: "Being selected in the under-23s is quite big for me as I am only 20. I could put myself in a position to go to the Olympics with that squad as well.

"With regular football in mind, I also might need to try to sort out a loan."
