Canaries’ frontman Nelson Oliveira expects his future to be sorted before next season.

Oliveira has already been touted with a potential summer exit from Carrow Road and the striker, in an interview with respected Portuguese sports paper, A Bola, published on Wednesday, did not rule out the possibility of leaving.

In the wide-ranging article, where the translated headline is, ‘I have matured and I will prove people wrong who distrust me’, Oliveira responded to questions on whether he will move on this summer by saying:

“As for my career, rest assured: the next season will bring news. I don’t know what’s coming, I can’t talk about proposals.

“Those who are suspicious of my quality, I will have the opportunity to surprise and prove them wrong.

“That’s what I work for.”

The 26-year-old, who has two more years on the Carrow Road deal he penned in August 2016, scored nine goals in 41 appearances for club and country but City head coach Daniel Farke has already made it clear recruiting more firepower is a top priority in the coming weeks.

Oliveira reportedly attracted serious interest from Swansea City in last summer’s transfer window but stayed at Carrow Road, where he had a couple of high profile public fallouts with Farke during the German’s debut campaign.
