REUTERS - Joao Carlos Teixeira will return to his homeland after Liverpool confirmed the midfielder's switch to Portuguese side Porto on a free transfer on their website on Tuesday.

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.

According to British media reports, Teixeira rejected a new deal offered by Liverpool as he hoped to resurrect his career following a lack of first-team opportunities at Anfield.

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