London: Spain striker Diego Costa has completed his transfer to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid, the English Premier League side announced Tuesday.

The Brazil-born forward had long been linked with a move to the London side and completion of the deal appeared to be imminent after the Blues said earlier this month they had met the buy-out clause for the 25-year-old, whose transfer transfer fee could be in the region of 32 million pounds ($55 million, 40 million euros).

"Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Diego Costa has today (Tuesday) completed his transfer from Atletico Madrid by signing a five-year contract," a statement from the London club said.
