Chelsea have taken the shock decision of including castaway striker Diego Costa in their Premier League squad.

Costa is currently holed up in his hometown of Lagarto in Brazil and refusing to return to Chelsea after a major fallout with manager Antonio Conte at the start of the summer.

Atletico Madrid were continuing to negotiate with Chelsea on Thursday as they sought to secure the transfer before the Spanish transfer window closed on Friday night.

However, several sources in Spain felt the deal appeared unlikely to go through in time.
Atletico are under a transfer embargo until January and therefore Costa would be unable to play for Diego Simeone's team until the turn of the year.

As such, Atletico do not see a rush to cut a deal but talks continue over a £45m transfer.
