Bio

Teixeira, who is of Portuguese descent, has progressed through Albion’s youth ranks during his early teenage years. 

The 18-year-old was blooded in the Baggies’ PL2 ranks during the early stages of the 2020/21 season, with his tenacity in the middle and long-range passing ability earning the respect of his older teammates throughout the campaign. 

Teixeira was a mainstay during Albion’s FA Youth Cup run in 2021, developing a strong relationship with Tim Iroegbunam in the middle of the park. 

The Portuguese midfielder has proved to be a key contributor in getting Albion’s attacking players forward, with play regularly coming through Teixeira during changes in phases.  

“Aurio’s a very intelligent footballer with a high football IQ, is tenacious in his game and another combative midfield player who uses his body well” - 18s boss Peter Gilbert.
