Joao Carlos Teixeira joined Brighton on loan from Liverpool last week.

Last week, Brighton & Hove Albion signed Liverpool midfielder Joao Carlos Teixeira on a season-long loan, in a move which significantly bolsters the Seagulls' midfield options.

On the announcement of this deal, Brighton manager Sami Hyypia told the official Brighton website:

We are delighted to have brought Joao in for the season and we are very grateful to Liverpool. The reports I have seen on him are very positive and my former colleagues at Liverpool have told me he is a very bright young prospect who is held in high regard at the club at all levels.

A former Red, the Finn utilised his contacts with the Merseyside club in order to secure this deal, with the Portuguese midfielder highly rated at Liverpool.

Further involvement between the two clubs could be beneficial to both parties, with Liverpool's peripheral or youth figures gaining vital experience and Brighton receiving a low-cost, high-quality player.

Per football-league.co.uk, Brighton are able to sign a further three players on loan from the Reds; a maximum of two of these signings can be over 23 years old.

If Hyypia were to open his filofax and call the Liverpool hierarchy once more, which other players should Brighton sign from the Reds this season?
