Liverpool secured the exciting capture of Portugal U19 international Joao Carlos Teixeira from Sporting Lisbon in February 2012.
The midfield playmaker has already scored in front of the Kop against the Reds in the NextGen Series, and he was a pivotal performer for Sporting in the two group games.
Teixeira will start life with the Reds in Rodolfo Borrell's reserve team squad and will be based at the Academy.
His style has been compared to legendary Portugese ace Deco, and he came through the renowed Sporting Lisbon Academy.
His performances in the NextGen Series saw him train with the Sporting Lisbon first team squad, before a move to Merseyside came about.
He is very much seen as a player for the future and Liverpool are delighted to have him on board.
