Sunderland are said to be on the trail of former Liverpool midfielder Joao Teixeira and could make a loan move in the New Year.

The 23-year-old left Anfield in the summer after failing to make the grade at the club and moved back to Portugal with Porto, with Liverpool originally signing him from Sporting Lisbon.

A return to his home country has not worked out, however, and he has yet to feature for his new club and does not appear to be part of their plans, and so a return to England could be on the cards.

Sunderland boss David Moyes knows he needs to strengthen in January and the midfielder, who featured for the Reds just twice in his four years, could be available for a six-month loan.
