Diego Costa joins Wolves on a free transfer

Wolves signed former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa for a full season on Monday.

The 33-year-old has been without a club since leaving Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro in January.

After new signing Sasa Kalajdzic suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury on his debut against Southampton the week before last, Wolves were on the lookout for more attacking players.

Wolves chairman Jeff Shi said: “We are delighted to welcome Diego Costa to Wolves and the Premier League.

“A serial winner with a wealth of experience at the highest level, Diego will bring something unique to our dressing room and the pitch and we look forward to his impact at Molineux.”

Wolves have scored just three goals in their opening six games of the Premier League season and sit 14th in the table with six points.

Costa scored 59 goals in 120 games for Chelsea in his final spell in England, leading the Blues to two Premier League titles.

But his career has also been overshadowed by a series of on-field outbursts, and since leaving London in 2017 he has struggled to build on his time at Chelsea and his first spell at Atletico.

After two-and-a-half years in Madrid, Costa returned to Atletico Mineiro in Brazil in August 2021 but failed to make an impact before his contract was terminated in January.
