The extension to this tweet says the following:

The Valencia CF and Club Atletico de Madrid have agreed the transfer of Brazilian Guilherme Siqueira to the Spanish side until June 30, 2017.

Magdalena Guilherme Siqueira (born 28.04.1986 in Florianopolis, Brazil) is a Brazilian left-back of proven quality, with good  experience in both La Liga and internationally.

Siqueira came into the league in 2010 from Granada CF and after being at Italian club Udinese. At Granada he completed three spectacular seasons in which he was one of the best left-backs in the league.

During his time at Granada, he went on loan to Portuguese club Benfica and put in some strong performances that caught the attention of teams like Atletico Madrid, who signed him for  the 14/15 Premier League season.

Siqueira will arrive tomorrow Monday, February 1  for a medical examination with Divina Pastora Seguros for the print media in the Ciudad Deportiva de Paterna at 9:30.

He will then be presented at a press conference at the Media Center, after training, by Sports Director Jesus Garcia Pitarch.

This is not good news for Newcastle.
