Atletico Madrid to Deportivo (Loan)
Atletico Madrid right-back Silvio has joined fellow La Liga side Deportivo on loan until the end of the season. The defender has been in and out of Atletico’s first team this season, but more times than not, he has missed selection. In an effort to gain playing time, he has joined Deportivo, which is ranked last in La Liga at the moment. A likely contributing factor to the move is the recent appointment of Domingos Pacienca, who Silvio played under at Braga during the 2010-2011 season.
