Liverpool have signed Portugal youth international Joao Carlos Teixera from Sporting Lisbon for a fee believed to be around £850,000.

The 19-year-old will join the club’s Kirkby Academy.

Teixeira had not played a senior game for Sporting, but he trained with the senior squad this season.

Sporting has produced a long line of youth talent, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Luis Figo, but the Portuguese club are believed to be under financial restraints.
