Portuguese Starlet Departs On Loan

Portuguese youth international Joao Carlos Teixeira has left Liverpool for a month's loan at Brentford.

The Bees, who lost the League One Play Off final to Yeovil Town last season, currently lie 9th in the standings with a total of nine points from six games.

Teixeira, 20, joined Liverpool from Sporting Lisbon in February 2012, in a deal worth a reported £1million, following a string of impressive performances in the NextGen Series.

Although he is yet to feature for Liverpool's first team, the playmaker has become an integral part of the club's U21 side and is highly regarded on Merseyside.

Commenting on the capture, Brentford boss Uwe Rosler told the club's official website: "I feel we needed another addition to give us extra quality in the final third.

"We thank Liverpool for allowing Joao to come here. He will give us something creative we need, especially when teams sit deep against us.

"This is Joao's first loan spell and we have to be careful with him and look after him."
