Diego Costa has taken to social media to emphatically reject suggestions that he is set to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window and reaffirm his commitment to the west London club.

The Spanish striker has rarely been out of the headlines this season but has proved himself to be a key player for the Blues despite all of the off-pitch chatter.

The latest reports in the media have suggested that Costa is set to leave Chelsea to move to the Chinese Super League in a big-money deal.

However, the striker seems to have emphatically quashed those reports with a blunt update on social media on Friday.

Costa shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “🗣🗣🗣falam muita merda!!! They talk too much s**t!!! come on Chelsea 💪🏽👊🏽!!!”

Costa will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime in the Premier League as they look to take a step closer towards winning the title.
