Joao Carlos Teixeira has taken to Instagram to thank Liverpool after securing a move to Portuguese giants Porto.

The midfielder is set to leave Anfield when his contract comes to an end on July 1, when he will officially join the Portuguese side.

He is the second youngster to depart the club this summer, with Jordan Rossiter having agreed a move to Scotland with Glasgow Rangers.

His departure brings about four years at the club after he initially joined from Sporting CP back in 2012. And posting on Instagram, he was keen to thank the club and the fans that have supported him over the years.

Liverpool’s attention now turn to what other players will be departing the club in this summer transfer window.

It is expected to be a busy summer for the club as Jurgen Klopp moulds the squad to better suit his needs in future.
