Filipe de Andrade Teixeira (born 2 October 1980 in Paris, France) is a Portuguese footballer who currently plays for English Championship Barnsley on loan from West Bromwich Albion.

Club career

Teixeira started his career with FC Felgueiras, in the Portuguese Third Division. After good showings with this club, he sealed a deal with French second level club FC Istres, continuing to move up the following season, leaving for Paris Saint-Germain FC, where he teamed up with Brazil's Ronaldinho.

Teixeira would eventually leave to Portugal, his "other nation", joining Vítor Pontes's União de Leiria on loan, and playing alongside compatriots Hugo Almeida and Luis Filipe. At the season's end, he returned to Paris, and teamed up with two more countrymen: Pauleta and Hugo Leal, but was not very successful overall, only totalling 18 league appearances in his two spells. Another move to Portugal followed, as he left for Académica de Coimbra to better his chances for playing with Portugal, eventually posting two respectable seasons.

Teixeira completed a move to West Bromwich Albion on 17 July 2007 for a fee of £600,000, signing a three-year contract.[1]He made his pre-season debut one week later against Northampton Town, scoring twice.[2]His competitive debut for Albion came in a 2–1 defeat away at Burnley, on the opening day of 2007–08.[3]Teixeira scored his first goal for the club in a 2–0 home win over Barnsley, on 1 September 2007.[4]His performances in midfield for Albion during September earned him a place on the shortlist for Championship Player of the Month, although the award went to Watford's Darius Henderson.[5]

Teixeira was stretchered off after 18 minutes of Albions 3–0 home win against Plymouth Argyle, when he landed awkwardly following a clash with Gary Sawyer.[6]Initial scans on the player's knee suggested that he had suffered cruciate ligament damage and was "likely to miss the rest of the campaign".[7]The prognosis proved correct and Teixeira returned to Portugal to have an operation, before undergoing rehabilitation at former club Académica.[8] On the 31st January Teixeira joined Barnsley on loan for the rest of the season
