Chelsea's duo from Atletico Madrid will feature on tour.

Chelsea have confirmed two new signings Diego Costa and Filipe Luis will feature on their pre-season tour.

Both stars were snapped ahead of jetting out, as revealed by the club's Instagram page: 

"A first look at new signings Diego Costa and @filipeluis- about to board the team plane to Austria. #CFC #Chelsea."

Neither players have taken part in earlier pre-season friendly wins over Wycombe Wanderers or AFC Wimbledon, but will hope to play some part against RZ Pellets on Wednesday (23).

Left-back Filipe Luis has had a full break this off-season after a packed season with Atletico Madrid.

Striker Diego Costa played two games at the World Cup but has had a month off since Spain's surprise early exit.
