Diego Costa’s move to Wolves has hit a snag after the Spanish international was denied a work permit, with the club appealing the decision.
Wolves had hoped to sign the 33-year-old in time for Saturday’s game at Liverpool, after summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic was ruled out by an ACL injury suffered during their win over Southampton last weekend.
Costa is a free agent after leaving Atletico Mineiro in January.

What has Costa been doing recently?
Since leaving Chelsea in the summer of 2017, Costa spent three-and-a-half years at Atletico Madrid, scoring 19 goals in 81 matches in all competitions, before his contract was mutually terminated in December 2020.
The forward joined Atletico Mineiro in August 2021 and scored five times in 19 games, but saw his contract terminated in January of this year.
Costa has spent the last eight months away from football but could make a stunning move back to the Premier League should his trial end up being successful.
