The England defender has been sold to Newcastle this week.
Simeone said, “I always look at the positive things. Absolutely grateful to all the time that Kieran has been here with us. The club has given him 48 hours to resolve the situation. He has behaved very well, he has worked very well, he has been a very important footballer for us.
"And now to always look ahead. To what is coming. And look for alternatives, as always, so that things work.
“The club clearly knows what we need, want and seek. We are always in common agreement for everything that happens from now on. As far as possible and, if not, with the people we have."
