Diego Costa has revealed that he intends to help Chelsea secure more silverware next season following a successful first campaign in English football.

The 26-year-old Spain international was signed from Atletico Madrid in a £32million deal last summer when Blues boss Jose Mourinho activated the buy-out clause in his contract at the 2013-14 La Liga champions and 2014 Champions League finalists.

Costa has had an immediate impact in the Premier League this past term with 20 goals and five assists in 37 appearances ensuring Chelsea secured their first title since 2010, while they also lifted the League Cup.

Reports in Spain had suggested that the Brazil-born striker is homesick and is looking to make a return to Atletico Madrid, while Real Madrid have also been linked with a summer swoop.

However Costa rubbished the speculation and stressed that he is happy at Stamford Bridge and is determined to pick up more trophies in the
2015-16 season.

He said: “It’s really good to come in the first season and win two things.

“It’s really important and next year I’ll be ready to come back and hopefully win a couple more trophies.”

Chelsea are the strong 2.88 favourites to retain their Premier League title next term, although Jose Mourinho will no doubt be looking for a deeper run in the Champions League after Paris Saint-Germain sent them packing in the first kockout stage, despite having a man sent off in the second leg.
