Stoke City are poised to sign Dukla Banska Bystrica defender Dionatan Teixeira, Sky Sports understands
Brazilian-born Teixeira is believed to have impressed on trial at Stoke recently and the two clubs are close to agreeing a deal to see him move to the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes is an admirer of Teixeira having worked with the former Manchester City trainee during his time at the Etihad Stadium.
A number of other English clubs have been tracking Teixeira, but Stoke are ready to offer him the chance to play in the Premier League.
The Slovakia Under 21 international is set to become Stoke's second recent signing following the arrival of Queens Park Rangers striker Peter Skapetis.
