Atletico Madrid are reportedly set to sign Diego Costa from Chelsea, and have no plans to loan the striker out until he can play in January.

Atleti cannot register new players until January 2, 2018 because of a transfer ban, but AS say they are close to a deal that will see Costa return to the club.

And it is reported that Atletico feel it would be best if Costa did not go out on loan but instead trained with the club until he can play.
