After a long-running battle between Diego Costa and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, the 28-year-old Chelsea striker will now remain at the club as Atletico Madrid were unable to sign him before the close of the transfer window.

Chelsea have included Costa in their Premier League squad for this season and Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is excited the striker is staying and took to twitter to express his delight.

He mimicked the infamous quote by Gerard Pique on Neymar earlier in the summer, as the Belgian tweeted: ‘Se queda’, meaning ‘stays’ with a picture of himself and Costa holding last season’s Premier League trophy.
