Bright young star Joao Carlos Teixeira is set to spend the next five months on loan at Brentford, where it will bee interesting to watch his development, even if his temporary departure from the U21 team may sting a little.

With the transfer window mercifully over for the time being, so begins the period where Academy youngsters ready for a bigger challenge who aren't yet considered legitimate first team fringe options are sent on loan to a lower league team to get some playing time. Joao Carlos Teixeira, last seen in sixth place on the depth chart at central midfield, will find himself in Greater London until January where he'll get to ply his trade with League One club Brentford FC.

“We have been following Joao for a while," said Uwe Rösler, Brentford's manager. “We have not scored many goals so far this season and it is not down to the lack of opportunities. I feel we needed another addition to give us extra quality in the final third.

“We thank Liverpool Football Club 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. We could see today in training that he has enormous quality in terms of his work in the final third, releasing the ball at the right time. And he is a goal threat.”

Twenty year-old Teixeira moved to Merseyside from Sporting Lisbon in February 2012, but has yet to make a senior team appearance for Liverpool. Featuring for the club's U21 team, he made twenty league appearances in 2012/13, scoring two goals.

Teixeira joins a club fighting for promotion to the Championship. The Bees finished in third place in 2012-13, which granted them a spot in the League One playoffs where they lost in the final to the now newly promoted side Yeovil Town.

We wish Teixeira good luck in London and hope he gets Griffin Park buzzing with excitement.
