Defender pens loan agreement with League One side...

DIONATAN TEIXEIRA has today joined League One side Fleetwood Town on an emergency one-month loan deal and could make his debut for the club this weekend.

The 23-year-old is expected to go straight into caretaker manager Chris Lucketti’s squad for tomorrow’s encounter against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

The Cod Army recently dismissed boss Graham Alexander following a disappointing start to the 2014/15 campaign, having claimed just two wins from their opening ten fixtures.

Teixeira, a Slovakian under 23 international, has struggled for game time at the Britannia Stadium – making just a single Premier League appearance for the Club following his arrival last summer.

Ironically, that solitary cameo came against this weekend’s opposition Aston Villa during a 2-1 triumph in the West Midlands in February.

The defender is eligible to feature for the League One strugglers in their forthcoming encounters against Scunthorpe United, Shrewsbury Town, Coventry City, Burton Albion, Sheffield United, Barnsley and Chesterfield.

Meanwhile, Academy midfielder Oliver Roberts has joined National League North side Tamworth on a youth loan.
