Atletico Madrid set to offload fringe midfielders

Atletico Madrid hope to perform a mini-clearout in the coming days of their fringe players.

Diego Costa is set to join Albacete on-loan, while Segunda Liga rivals Celta Vigo will take midfielder Mario Suarez in a similar agreement.

Costinha continues to train at Atletico, but is expected to join Atalanta on a free transfer, while Zahinos is in talks with Recreativo Huelva.
