OFFICIAL : Wolves complete the signing of Diego Costa
Wolves has signed seasoned international striker Diego Costa to a contract extension until the end of the 2022-23 season.
The international player from Spain, who has nearly 500 games under his belt, has 12 major awards. These awards include two Premier League titles from a remarkable period with Chelsea.
The 33-year-old time in London was comparable to his two trophy-laden stints at Atletico Madrid and now having passed his medical at Compton Park on Thursday, he brings that knowledge and attacking savvy to Bruno Lage’s team. Diego was born in Brazil but he rose to prominence in Spain. He displayed zeal and a desire to win trophies which manifested itself in 2010 when he relocated to the Spanish capital and his career took off.
He really came into his own during the 2013-14 season leading Atletico Madrid to their first La Liga championship in 50 years. His 36 goals in all competitions and all-around attacking prowess made him a thorn in the side of defenders across Spain.
The striker scored against Chelsea in an FA Cup match at Molineux in February 2017. The hunger persisted when Costa returned to Madrid the following summer as He went on to win the Europa League. He later then score three goals for Spain in his final appearance in international competition at the 2018 World Cup.
D. Costa added another league and cup double to his resume with Atletico Mineiro in Brazil. His excellent goalscoring record was raised to 188 before he left at the start of the year.
