​Wolves legend Bull: Diego Costa will provide entertainment

Wolves legend Steve Bull is excited to see Diego Costa at the club.

The Spanish striker is a surprise free agent pick up from the Premier League club, having been without a club all summer.

Costa, who won the Premier League twice with Chelsea earlier in his career, will bring entertainment to Molineux.

Bull wrote in the Express & Star: "They've gone and got Diego Costa now, who will hopefully be ready soon, and his signing is sure to bring entertainment.

"He's one of those players that you want on your side because he's a horrible player – but he's a good player!

"He reminds me a bit of how I played, rough around the edges but he gets on with job and scores goals.

"I think he could be an ideal signing, if he's fit. It will take time for him to get ready for Premier League football because he hasn't played for a little while.

"He can't be chucked in at the deep end but when he's sharp he can make an impact.

"He's signed a one year deal and will want to score goals, and what better place to do it than at Wolves with the service we have down the wings – he could thrive!

"Wolves should use Costa when and whenever they have to and in the long-term they'll need to keep an eye out for another striker, in case Kalajdzic doesn't come back as fit and strong as before.

"Wolves are also quite a nice team and Costa will give them an edge.

"Since Conor Coady left Wolves have needed leaders and Costa can lead from the front, adding to what Ruben Neves and other players bring in the leadership department.

"He won't start every single game but when he comes off the bench defenders will be scared of him. When he gets his chance, he's big enough, strong enough and old enough to get the goals and put himself about."
