Brentford have snapped up Liverpool attacker Joao Carlos Teixeira.

Teixeira will remain at Griffin Park with Uwe Rosler's Brentford until January 2014, before returning to the Reds' Kirkby Academy.

The midfielder made a name for himself with a series of stand-out performances in the NextGen Series, scoring in front of the Kop as Lisbon won at Anfield in August 2011.
