Alvaro has criticised his agent, who he claims misled him about a proposed move to Newcastle United last week.

The Brazilian defender initially assumed his club Levante had blocked a move to St James Park but it now transpires that his agent, Mariam Khadour, had not be truthful about Newcastle’s interest.

“I cannot find a logical explanation for it all,” he told a press conference. “I have changed my mind completely and the club has been very strong and responded with everything I wanted.

“Levante has proof of everything that happened and that nobody else is to blame apart from this woman.

“It was all very difficult, but I want to thank the club for the way things have gone.”

Alvaro said last week that he felt he could never play for the club again after he thought that they had stopped him leaving.

“It is bad to say that they wanted me to go, but I have already asked for forgiveness and I will continue giving everything to Levante,” he explained

“I think it is quite normal to be excited, though, when a club comes in and offers you such incredible amounts.”
