This Wolves player could be leaving very soon after putting out a concerning message.

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Diego Costa has caused concern for supporters after posting some cryptic messages on social media this week. The former Chelsea man, who joined Wanderers on a free transfer last summer, struggled to get going at first but has been impressive throughout the second half of the season.

Costa has only scored once in 23 Premier League appearances this term - in the 2-0 win against Brentford - but his contribution has gone well beyond his sole direct goal involvement. The 34-year-old has put in a real shift every time he’s put on a Wolves shirt, especially when enjoying the atmosphere on home soil at Molineux.

The Brazilian’s hardworking, determination and aggression have been key to Julen Lopetegui’s side surviving relegation – and he’s formed quite the partnership with January signing Matheus Cunha. Costa may be set to leave, however, as his contract expires in June and he has published some concerning Instagram posts.

Costa first shared photos of himself, Cunha, Toti Gomes and Matheus Nunes at an outdoor barbecue - an occasion Talking Wolves suggested could be a farewell - before showing a night out with more of his teammates. His Instagram Story shows a band playing with Cunha singing, with the caption ‘Valeu mew mano @cunha vou sentir saudades’.

Portuguese isn’t our strong suit but a quick translation discloses Costa was saying ‘Thanks my bro @cunha, I will miss you’. This would suggest - unless we’re mistaken - that Costa will be leaving very soon as Cunha signed for a £40 million fee in January and won’t be parting ways. Wolves face Arsenal on Sunday in a game that could well be Costa’s last for the Old Gold.
