Chelsea striker Diego Costa to undergo scans on damaged hamstring

Diego Costa will undergo scans on his damaged hamstring before a decision is made regarding his involvement in Spain’s upcoming internationals against Ukraine and Holland.

Costa was withdrawn during the second half of Chelsea’s 3-2 win at Hull on Sunday after suffering a hamstring injury.

He is due to undergo tests in London on Monday and the Spanish medical team will then assess whether he can remain in the squad for the upcoming internationals.

“Costa will undergo tests on Monday in London and the results will be available to Spain’s medical staff for their evaluation,” the Spanish federation (RFEF) said in a statement.

The Spain international has been plagued by muscular problems since his move to Stamford Bridge, while he missed the games against Belarus and Germany in November because of a hamstring problem.
