- Diego Costa could make a final day move to Tottenham, Danny Mills suggests
- The Spanish striker recently became a free agent after his contract with Atletico was terminated
- Jose Mourinho is in desperate need of a striker following the injury to Harry Kane
Diego Costa could make a last day January transfer move to reunite with his former manager Jose Mourinho at Tottenham, former England international Danny Mills claims.
Spurs are in dire need of a striker following the injury suffered by Harry Kane during their 3-1 loss to Liverpool last midweek.
And the north London side lost to Brighton over the weekend with their captain's presence felt in the encounter.
It is understood Kane could make a return before the end of February and former England right Danny Mills claims Costa could bring a short-term solution to the Lily Whites.

Costa is currently a free agent after his contract with Atletico Madrid was terminated in December due to mutual consent.
Mills believes the Spanish striker is the right replacement for Kane on a short term basis, Express UK:
“There’s also Diego Costa still out there, you know.
“Okay, he’s got one or two issues that you have to deal with Diego Costa but as a short-term measure from now to the end of the season I’m surprised nobody has taken a gamble on him. With his record which is outstanding.
“Carlos Vinicius is there to step up but I think it depends how long Harry Kane is going to be out for.
“That’s ultimately going to be the key. Is it going to be 10 days to two weeks or is it going to be a month to six weeks?
“That’s what Mourinho will be fearful of. Harry Kane has had injuries in the past but he’s always come back from those injuries and when he’s back to fitness it doesn’t look like those injuries are holding him back in any way shape or form so that’s a good sign for Tottenham.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho has vented his frustrations at Thiago's challenge on Harry Kane during Tottenham's loss to Liverpool, Mirror.
The England striker will be out for a few weeks and it will come as a huge blow to Spurs' title challenge this season.
Thiago delivered a bad tackle to Kane after the referee ignored a call from the Spaniard who tried to dribble past Pierre-Emile Hoejbjerg.
The former Bayern Munich star was shown a yellow card for his offense after sliding in on Kane's right ankle.
