AEK Athens in talks with Norwich over move for Nelson Oliveira

AEK Athens in talks with Norwich over move for Nelson Oliveira AEK Athens are reportedly in talks with Norwich City over a move for striker Nelson Oliveira. The Portugal international was loaned out to Reading for the second half of last season after struggling to break into the Canaries’ first team, and the striker scored three goals in 10 appearances for the Royals. According to a Greek news outlet, AEK Athens are in talks with Norwich over a move for Oliveira on a permanent deal this summer and the Greek side are wiling to offer the 27-year-old a contract worth over €1million a year.

FightHype.com was on hand at Arena Birmingham in Birmingham, England where former world champion Amir Khan survived an early knockdown to defeat Samuel Vargas via unanimous decision. Check out the scene immediately after the fight as those in attendance reacted to the performance.

Amir Khan resumes his roller-coaster career against Billy Dib and Johnny Nelson raises questions about the British fighter's future in his latest fight diary.

The 32-year-old former world champion faces Australian Dib in Saudi Arabia tonight, just three months after suffering a stoppage defeat at the hands of WBO welterweight title holder Terence Crawford in New York.

Sky Sports expert Nelson believes Khan can no longer reach his own high standards - and could even bow out of the sport following his fight with Dib.

Sdna.Gr report that Greek side AEK Athens are interested in a move for the Portuguese forward, and are close to agreeing on a deal to bring Oliveira to the Greek capital. The 27-year-old spent the second half of last season out on loan at Reading, having been cast out of Daniel Farke’s side during the opening months of the season. It had been thought that Reading were keen on a permanent deal for Oliveira, but not offer was put in place.

There's that curiosity to see what Amir Khan has got left. We've seen at world level, he's no longer a top competitor. He's a top opponent, but not a top competitor at world level, there's a difference. Now he's dropping down in levels against Billy Dib, so we'll see where he is.

I know Billy Dib. At one point, Billy Dib came to our gym for a short period. He was ambitious, he loves the sport. Khan's speed has gone a little, that's why he got turned over by Crawford, but I think it's enough to deal with Dib. It's the safe option for him to make a lot of money in Saudi Arabia.

The same reason that he's not boxed Kell Brook is the same reason that he's not boxed a Josh Kelly. He doesn't want to lose domestically to a UK fighter. You know what, this might be his last fight.

Khan could think - I've gone in there to see what I've got against a guy that realistically shouldn't be able to touch me, I'm struggling with him and now I should be out of this game.

Don't be surprised after this if Amir Khan says "I'm done, I've had a great run, thank you and bye." This could be his farewell fight. His speed was one of the main attributes he had that gave people hellfire. It's no longer there.
