Danny Holla (born December 31, 1987 in Almere, Flevoland) is a Dutch professional football midfielder who plays for Dutch club PEC Zwolle.

Early career[edit]

Holla played on loan to FC Zwolle during the first half of the 2007–08 season, but returned to parent club FC Groningen to replace Rasmus Lindgren, who had moved to Ajax. During the second half of the 2011–12 season, he was sent on loan again. This time to VVV-Venlo, where he successfully played his matches. In June 2012, Holla signed with ADO Den Haag before transferring to English club Brighton & Hove Albion during August 2014. He scored his first goal for the club against Brentford F.C, curling in a superb effort past the keeper, despite his side losing 3-2 at the end of the game.[2] His contract with Brighton & Hove Albion was terminated by mutual consent on 25 August 2016.
