Sky Bet Championship side Reading will not be signing striker Nelson Oliveira this summer, with the Portuguese forward recently completing a permanent move to AEK Athens.

The 27-year-old signed for the Royals on loan from Norwich City last term, scoring three goals in 10 league games for Jose Gomes’ side and helping the Berkshire club avoid the drop to League One.

A move away from Carrow Road always looked likely this summer, having gone almost seven months without making an appearance for the Canaries after falling out of favour under Daniel Farke.

Reading fans will have been keen to see their club re-sign the forward on a permanent basis, but he has now made the move to Greece to sign for AEK Athens.

The Royals have found it hard to bring in new players this summer, due to a soft transfer embargo that has really hampered the activity of Gomes’ business ahead of the new season.
