Uruguayan striker David Texeira has been granted a work permit to seal his move to the Eredivisie with FC Groningen.

The 20-year-old forward was signed by the Dutch side from native club Defensor Sporting during the summer transfer window.

After travelling back to Uruguay to finalise his permit, the Under-20 international has now been cleared to play for his new employers ahead of Sunday's derby against Heerenveen.

General manager Hans Nijland said: "I understand he just needed the final rubber stamp.

"The fact he can play does not mean he will play, that is of course down to the coaching staff. But it is always a bonus for a player from outside the EU to be available after only 10 days."
