EPL: Diego Costa’s return to Premier League confirmed


Wolves have confirmed the signing of Diego Costa on a one-year deal.

The 33-year-old had been without a club since January when he left Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro.

After Wolves’ summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic suffered an ACL injury on his debut, Bruno Lage needed reinforcements upfront.

Costa played for Chelsea from 2014 to 2017, scoring 52 goals in 89 appearances and helping the Blues win two league titles.

The Spain striker initially saw his work permit application rejected, but Wolves’ appeal was upheld on Wednesday.

Wolves had to press on with plans for a striker in case Costa’s work permit appeal was denied and the club seriously considered a move for Andy Carroll as their Plan B.
