Atletico Madrid complete the signing of Diego Costa from Premier League giants Chelsea

Posted: 27 September 2017 Time: 07:38

Chelsea have confirmed Diego Costa has completed his return to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

The two footballing powerhouses had agreed a deal for the forward last week, with Atletico said to have forked out around £50m to secure the Brazilian’s services.

The transfer will, however, only come into effect from January 1, 2018 as the La Liga side are currently in the middle of a transfer ban.

Costa said on Atletico's website: "I'm very happy to return home, I've always said it, Atletico is my home, I'm very, very happy.

"I'm looking forward to starting to contribute. I'm going to give my all for the team, as I always try to do.

"I'm very grateful to everyone, the whole club for making this move happen."
