Wolves announces the transfer of former Chelsea striker

Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa has joined Wolverhampton Wanderers for free and will be at the club until the end of the season.

The 33 year old has sealed a return to the Premier League after leaving Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro in January, where he featured 19 times and scored five goals last season before having his contract terminated after five months.

He had a trial with Wolves last week to assess his fitness and suitability.

Costa completed his medical on Thursday last week as cover for new signing Sasa Kalajdzic, who suffered a cruciate injury on his debut.

Costa has told Wolves' official website of the targets he is setting: “Score goals. Score goals, do the best I can, give it my all. Find my place as a person, a player and understand how I actually feel because this is a big challenge.

“It’s not an easy challenge because you’re not going to play in an easy league and you can’t play it the way you want to. This is a very demanding championship, physically demanding, and it is something to test myself with and I’m ready to give it a go.”

Wolves are currently 14th in the Premier League table after only registering one win in six games this season.

"Diego will bring something unique to our dressing room and on the pitch," said Wolves chairman Jeff Shi.
