Silvio joins Benfica on loan

Atletico Madrid defender Silvio will spend next season on loan at Portuguese club Benfica, the club have confirmed.

The 25-year-old spent the 2012/13 campaign at Deportivo, and has once again been farmed out on a short-term deal by Coach Diego Simeone.

The full-back played 18 times for the Turcos last term, but could prevent them from being relegated to Segunda.
