Diego Costa 'set for Saudi Arabia loan'

Chelsea striker Diego Costa will reportedly spend the next few months playing for Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal if an agreement is reached for him to move to Atletico Madrid in January.

Chelsea outcast Diego Costa could reportedly spend the next few months in Saudi Arabia playing for Al-Hilal if he agrees a move to Atletico Madrid in the coming days.

The 28-year-old is believed to be in the Spanish capital trying to arrange a return to the La Liga side, having been frozen out of the Blues' first-team plans by manager Antonio Conte earlier in the summer.

Atletico were unable to sign the striker during the summer months due to a transfer embargo but are believed to be close to an agreement to officially sign Costa when the January transfer window opens for a fee of £53m.

According to the Daily Mail, Costa will not return to Stamford Bridge once the deal has been done and has instead been earmarked for a short-term loan to Al-Hilal, who finished champions of the Saudi Professional League last term.

Costa last played for Chelsea in the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal at the end of May.
