Nottingham Forest have signed Benfica midfielder Joao Teixeira on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old was previously on loan with Championship rivals Wolves, making 20 appearances this term.

He scored twice in a league win over Brentford in September, but has only played four games since Paul Lambert was named Wolves boss on 5 November.

Teixeira's last appearance for Wolves came as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 loss to Cardiff on 13 December.

The Molineux club signed forward Andreas Weimann on loan from Derby County last week.
