Tyson Fury's rematch with Wladimir Klitschko could take place in the Middle East after the United Arab Emirates tabled an offer to fight there.

Fury's representatives are in talks with Klitschko's team over a rematch after Fury's shock win in Dusseldorf in November. 

Germany and England remain options with May the most probable month, although Fury's trainer and uncle says no date is in the book just yet.

"There has been nothing finalised yet," he told the Daily Mirror

"We are looking at May, but it could be May 7, 14, 21 or 28. Nothing is fixed.

"Germany has been mentioned, but it could also be in England or the UAE.

"The UAE is being looked at and it could end up anywhere."

Champion Fury does not mind giving up home advantage, with the rematch clause only stating that the fight takes place wherever makes the most sense financially.
