Dionatan do Nascimento Teixeira (24 July 1992 – 5 November 2017) was a Brazilian-born Slovakian professional footballer who played as a centre-back.

Teixeira began playing football with local side Londrina EC in Brazil before he was given the opportunity to play in Europe with Slovakian side MFK Košice in 2008. He played in the youth teams at Košice and went on trials with a number of clubs in England. A failure to gain a work permit ended any chances of him joining an English club, and after playing on loan for Slovan Bratislava in 2011–12 he was released by Košice.


On 5 November 2017, Teixeira suffered a fatal heart attack in Londrina, Brazil.
