Antonieliton Ferreira de Arruda, more commonly known as Ferreira (born 10 August 1983 in Campina Grande, Brazil) is a Brazilian professional football player, currently playing for Romanian Liga 1 team Universitatea Cluj.

The right back is a product of the F.C. Porto youth academy, though he never played for his parent club's first team, residing mainly in the B team. He made his professional debut when he was loaned to Gil Vicente F.C. for the 2003/04 season.

In 2004, Ferreira was one of three players (the other two were Tonel and Evaldo) signed by C.S. Marítimo as part of a cash plus player exchange deal which saw Pepe join Porto. While Tonel, and to an extent Evaldo, solidified their places in the first team, Ferreira struggled to make the starting eleven which favoured Luís Filipe in the right back position.

After 2 years of failing to find a first team place, eventually featuring regularly for C.S. Marítimo B, the club released Ferreira. he joined São Bento in March 2007, but left for Paços de Ferreira preparing for their UEFA Cup campaign in the 2007/08 season.

Had a good 2008/2009 season with 25 starts and a big goal against SL Benfica. Was strongly involved with a move to Germany's Bundesliga but a contract problem sent him back to Portugal in early September without a contract. Is staying fit with former team Paços de Ferreira waiting for the January market.
