Diego Costa rejected Everton for Atletico Madrid

According to reports, Diego Costa rejected an offer to stay in the Premier League, snubbing Everton in favour of a return to his former club Atletico Madrid.

The Toffees, who have been one of the highest spenders in the recently concluded summer transfer window, had an ambitious £66m bid accepted by the Blues, but Costa felt his career would be better served in Madrid rather than on Merseyside, and rejected Ronald Koeman’s side.

Koeman also tried to sign Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in the recently concluded window, but failed.

Everton currently have only two wins from six Premier League games, with Oumar Niasse’s double over the weekend against Bournemouth effectively saving their manager from the drop (also their first league goals in over a month)
