Nemeth: Set for Olympiakos move
Liverpool striker Krisztian Nemeth is on the brink of completing a move to Greek giants Olympiakos.
The Hungarian 21-year-old, who has failed to break into the first team at Anfield since arriving on Merseyside three years ago, has been heavily linked with the Piraeus club this summer.
Nemeth's agent Tibor Pataky travelled to Athens on Thursday to meet with Olympiakos vice-president Socrates Kominakis and finalise the deal.
The forward is expected to sign a three-year contract with an option for a further year in a €1.3million (around £1m) deal.
The transfer will guarantee Olympiakos 75 per cent of the player's rights, while Liverpool will keep 25 per cent for a future sale.
