Cape Town - Joao Carlos Teixeira will return to his homeland after Liverpool confirmed the midfielder's switch to Portuguese side Porto.

According to the club's website, the attacking midfielder joined Porto on a free transfer.

The 23-year-old failed to make an impact at the Merseyside club after scoring just one goal in his eight appearances during a four-year spell.

The Reds, however, will be entitled to a training compensation fee despite the Portugal under-21s international leaving upon the end of his contract.
