Atletico Madrid are confident of keeping Chelsea and Arsenal target Diego Costa at the Vicente Calderon during the January window.

The Brazilian striker only signed a new deal in the summer but that has not stopped speculation suggesting he could be heading to the Premier League with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all interested.

£31million would be enough to activate a release clause in the player's contract but Atletico Madrid sporting director Jose Luis Perez Caminero insists the player is going nowhere.

"The player has a clause of 38 millions euros and the big clubs in England know this," he is quoted by Marca. "Diego Costa has matured and is smart when it comes to decision making.

"Right now, Costa does not think of leaving, he is hooked on Atletico. He has re-signed a deal that is important, I am confident he will continue with us."
