Portuguese right-back Sílvio will join the La Liga club Deportivo La Coruña on loan for the rest of the season. Since moving to Atlético Madrid from Sporting Braga in 2011, the defender has failed to establish himself in the Spanish capital.

Sílvio joins a club loaded with Portuguese players, which includes internationals Pizzi and Nelson Oliveira. Most recently, former Sporting Lisbon and Braga manager Domingos Paciência was hired to replace José Luis Oltra.

Sílvio and Paciência will be hard pressed to rescue a club currently languishing last in the Spanish League. Deportivo have given up a league worst 39 goals. Most notably, the Galician club were embarrassed by Atlético Madrid 6-0 in a December 9th game at the Estadio Vicente Calderón. A game where Radamel Falcao scored five goals.
