Liverpool have today confirmed the signing of Sporting Lisbon starlet Joao Carlos Teixeira.
The 19-year-old Portuguese youth international joins the Academy ranks on Merseyside with immediate affect, after the Reds revealed on their official website that a deal had been finalised.
Teixeira scored in a 3-0 win for the Leões at Anfield, and has subsequently trained with the club's first team without earning a senior appearance under Domingos Paciência.
Kenny Dalglish will be hoping the player can follow in some big footsteps in England following the move from the Primeira Liga, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani both graduating from Sporting Lisbon's academy before making their mark in the Premier League at Manchester United.
