Diego Costa transfer complete
Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Diego Costa on a free transfer.
The striker joins Wolves outside the transfer window after an injury to summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic. Costa, 33, has penned a one-year contract at Molineux after being granted a work permit by the Football Association.
Costa passed all of the relevant medical examinations this morning to become Wolves’ sixth signing since the end of last season. If clearance arrives in time, Costa could make his debut against Man City on Saturday.

The Spain international enjoyed lots of success during a three-year spell in the Premier League with Chelsea. Costa scored 52 goals in 89 Premier League games for Chelsea, while he also racked up 16 assists in those games.
Costa hasn’t played competitively since leaving Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro in January, but he has answered Bruno Lage’s SOS call following the injury to Kalajdzic. In addition to Chelsea and Atletico Mineiro, Costa has also played for Atletico Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, Real Valladolid and Braga.
