Despite various reports linking Chelsea striker Diego Costa with a move to the Chinese Super League, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is confident of keeping Costa at Chelsea.

There were reports last month that Costa, who has scored 15 league goals for Chelsea this season, had his head turned by a £30 million-a-year offer from Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.

Asked on BBC’s Premier League show if Costa will stay at Chelsea, Conte replied: “Yeah… Diego is a really important player. The situation is very clear, he is very happy to stay with us and fight for the title.

“I think (he will stay for some time). I see him every day and his commitment and behaviour. He loves this club.”
