The 28-year-old was a target for Tianjin Quanjian but
any potential move was scuppered by new rules in the
Chinese Super League, according to the club's
owner.
Costa did not play in Chelsea's win at Leicester on
Saturday with boss Antonio Conte saying he had a back
problem.
He trained on his own on Monday but this was to aid
his recovery.
BBC Sport understands Chelsea are determined to keep
Costa, who is the joint top scorer in the Premier League
with 14 goals.
Costa's return to training means he could be in
contention for the visit of Hull on Saturday as Chelsea
look to extend their seven-point lead at the top of the
table.
