Report – Newcastle to Take Brazilian Full Back On Loan


Keith Downie of Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle are ready to take 29 year-old Atletico Madrid’s Brazilian left back Guilherme Siqueira on loan for the rest of the season and in a late update from Keith he says Guilherme is expected at Newcastle over the weekend to take a medical.

It looks like this deal could be real!

29 year-old Atletico Madrid left back Guilherme Siqueira



The player has been at the Madrid club since the summer of 2014 when he signed on from Spanish club Granada, but he has played only 7 times for Atletico so far this season.

However, in the last 18 months since joining Atletico Madrid he has played a total of 45 times for the Spanish club.

There was news earlier today that we are interested in signing Valencia Argentine International left-back Lucas Orban on loan for the rest of the season – so it looks we will bring at least one left back in before Monday.

Orban can also play at center-back.

After beginning his career in Brazil Siqueira signed on at Udinese in Italy in 2006 and was there for four years before signing on at Granada.

He also stayed there for four years and played 108 times with 13 goals for Granada before moving to Atletico Madrid 18 months ago.

In the 2013-2014 season he went on a season long loan to Benfica and he played in the Europa League Final for Benfica when they lost to Sevilla on penalties.

In that season he played 33 times for the Portuguese giants, so he is an experienced player.

It could be that Newcastle are moving for some defenders who the Newcastle coach Ian Cathro knows about because of the time he spent in Spain as assistant manager at Valencia and in the same capacity with Rio Ave in Portugal.

Either of these left backs on loan would seem to be a good deal for Newcastle.

    Feel I should talk about Doumbia on here since I talked about this lad on the last. Erm was good in Russia and terrible in Italy but brilliant on video games

    Would rather have Remy or Berah

    Would be very happy with Doumbia and Siqueira. Doumbia would offer us a lot of pace up front, I’m sure he will adapt to this league quickly, and siquiera an experienced left back used to rate him highly, good at attacking but hasn’t played a lot this season

    Siqueira will be a decent stop-gap until the summer, to provide competition and somebody capable of overlapping Townsend. Does his best work going forward, can be rash in the tackle. Definitely not a long-term solution.

    I hope Williamson leaving guarantees we are looking for at least one new defender with LB as a priority .
    I would go for Gibbs as he will take no time to bed in.

    Team after Jan fingers crossed :

    ——————————–Elliot————————–

    –Janmaat——–M’bemba———Collo——–Gibbs–

    ———————Saivet———–Shelvey—————-

    —Sissoko—————Wijnaldum———Townsend—

    ——————-Remy/Lacazette/Doumbia—————

    If McLaren can’t keep that team up he should be shot .

    Its good to see that the club are finally thinking outside the French box for players !!

    The Atletico left back could be a good bit of business hes solid defensively , quick and being someone who Simeone has signed will be a master of the dark arts of fouling which we need in the team ! He is not getting a game because they have that former Chelsea left back ahead of him!

    Finally signing English players and players from bigger clubs in Spain and possibly Italy with Doumbia is it just relegation panic that is causing this change in transfer policy?

    He will be only the 4th Brazilian to play for Newcastle, if he signs that is. I wonder what the aversion has been to Brazilian players in the past.

    Oh aye am certainly not against him he sounds like a quality loan but I doubt he will become a NUFC player more more than 6 months sounds like a stop gap until the summer if it comes off maybe not though

    My words I am entirely ignorant to this bloke and deal haha I love it

    Of course I’ll reserve judgment on any player, but my reaction is that this all smacks of desperation borne of incompetence.

    I shall defer to those who know more on this player.

    Having said that it is a little exciting to think that the club have either realised where we need changes, or they are spying on this blog for tips on what the head coach needs. 😀

    Of course this reeks of desperation but im just glad we are trying to solve it. Suggests that these are 2 positions they have identified that needs addressing …even though we all figured this out a long tine ago

    Also Doumbia is tailor made for the Premier League IMO .

    He is strong and has lightning pace . I can only imagine Shelvey pinging through balls for him to chase .

    Sometimes you need to sign stop gaps to get you through the 2nd half of the season which is something our club has not done for years

    It would be better to get these 2 players than get no one at all !!

    Doumbia is good striker but I don’t think he is built for this league. If we’re looking at African strikers then I think oumar niasse would be perfect. Hard working, fast finisher with a powerful shot. Loves playing on the shoulder. Plus he can play with the ball at his feet. He is a gamble but seeing as he is someone who has developed late he only seems to be getting better like drogba did though they are different types of strikers.

    I also take solace in the fact Ashley must be squirming in his seat forking out all this money so he doesn’t miss out on that big juicy carrot coming next season .

    doumbia would be perfect imo as would Siqueira as we have arma and hairdryer and it would be perfect to give them time to evolve with less pressure.

    @ WWSBRD

    Seri A isn’t as open or fast paced as the PL as the Italians are known for their defending .

    Currently the English game is about counter attacking, and with Sissoko, Townsend , Doumbia & Wijnaldum all using their pace with shelve picking out passes it could be something special .

    WWSRB – I seek not fans on the blog -which is clearly what others do in order for them to win or think they’ve won debates which have been rejected by the majority.
    By and large these “fans” as you put it all eminitate from debates/spats from those inclined to believe King Percy was the bees knees. They do not forget their “ass whoopings” and return time after time for a dig/pop – under the guise of something else.
    I find it quite amusing that some “converts” away from the King post along the lines of “I never liked King Percy/ I never thought he was a top manager………….BUT……………!
    They cannot help themselves.

    Bit harsh to judge a player on 13 games pal to say he was such a failure,Especially as he was carrying little injuries.

    Mitrovic has played around the same games…Does that make him a failure ?
    I agree tho on our current transfer policy than 29 would be to old. But if it is just for a loan then I would definitely welcome the guy.
