MADRID - Brazilian midfielder Diego Ribas is returning to Atletico Madrid on loan to help the Spanish club's push for a first league title since 1996.

Diego spent the 2011/12 season at Atletico, helping Diego Simeone's team win the Europa League.

Atletico says Friday the 28-year-old midfielder is joining from Bundesliga club Wolfsburg until the end of the season, dependent on passing the medical.

Atletico is level on points with Spanish league leader Barcelona going into Sunday's game against Real Sociedad. It will play Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semifinals and is up against AC Milan in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Diego says "I'm happy to form part of such a strong group, one of the best teams in Europe. I'm anxious to see my teammates."
