Viewers in stitches at Wolves fan’s reaction and accent when finding out Diego Costa’s arrival

Viewers have been left in stitches at a Wolves fan’s reaction and accent when finding out Diego Costa’s arrival at the club.

As the 33 year old arrived at Wolves’ training ground for a medical ahead of his free transfer, Sky Sports took to the streets to get a reaction from Wolves supporters.

Costa had his work permit accepted on appeal on Wednesday after it was initially rejected by the Home Office. His original application was dismissed due to his lack of recent match-time at club level and recent lack of international appearances for Spain.

However, on Tuesday, Wolves were confident the initial decision would be overturned due to his pedigree as an elite athlete.

As soon as the appeal was granted, Costa was given the green light to fly to the UK for medical tests. He landed on Wednesday night, but arrived at Wolves’ Compton training ground on Thursday morning.

The striker is set to sign a one-year deal with Wolves on Thursday afternoon, but he is not expected to be ready for the club’s upcoming Premier League clash with Liverpool on Saturday.

Costa hasn’t played a competitive match since December, making just 19 appearances for his previous club Atletico Mineiro before terminating his contract in January.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage is in desperate need of a new striker, lacking goals so far this season, and thought they got what they needed with Β£15million summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic, but he’s now set for a long spell on the sidelines with an ACL injury.

The transfer window not set to re-open until January and he’s had few attacking options to choose from.

Andy Carroll emerged as another potential target after it was revealed that Costa’s initial work permit application had been rejected. Lage will be however be thrilled that he has finally secured his top target.

And it seems the news came across to some supporters as fake, with mentioned by one Wolves fan with a very strong accent interviewed on Sky Sports. We would repeat what he said, but it’ll be funnier if you tried to figure it out for yourselves…

As mentioned, viewers are in stitches at a Wolves fan’s reaction and accent when finding out Diego Costa’s arrival…
