Liverpool of course refused to meet Shakhtar’s £38m valuation, despite the player actively seeking a move, and eventually Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Sunig stumped up the cash and bought him from under our noses.

Teixeira ran from the left wing before placing a shot into the bottom corner, helping his side beat Jeonbuk 3-2.
