Liverpool loan Nemeth to Athens

Liverpool have sent Hungarian striker Krisztian Nemeth out on loan to Greek side AEK Athens.

The 20-year-old, who has yet to make a first team appearance for Rafael Benitez's side, has signed a contract with AEK until the end of the season.

"I am coming to a big club in a great city," the under-21 international said. "I hope we can win the championship."

Benitez signed Nemeth and compatriot Andras Simon in May 2007 after seeing them at the UEFA U17 championships.

Simon has been loaned out to Spanish club Cordoba CF for the rest of the season.

Nemeth scored 18 goals in 37 league games for MTK Hungaria and helped the club finish second in the Hungarian league in 2007.


Benitez has predicted a big future for the youngster who was involved in Liverpool's pre-season tours of Switzerland and Asia, netting two goals against Singapore last month.

His departure comes as Liverpool set about trying to recover from the loss of the two of their opening three league games.

AEK Athens finished second in the Greek league playoffs last season, missing out on qualification for the Champions League.

"The level of the Greek championship is good and I'm looking forward to it," said Nemeth.

The Reds signed Greece international defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos from AEK last week.
