Deulofeu in Barca senior squad

Gerard Deulofeu, Carles Puyol and Thiago Alcantara are all included in the Barcelona squad to travel to Getafe this weekend.

Youngster Deulofeu has caught the eye with the B team in recent months and last week provided a notable goal and assist in Spain’s Under-21 win over Croatia.

With Alexis Sanchez and Andres Iniesta both ruled out for the next couple of weeks, the young attacker winger has been called up by Tito Vilanova for this weekend’s trip to Getafe.

Also in the squad are Thiago and Puyol, who both return after injury. Jordi Alba misses the game through illness.

Barcelona squad to play Getafe: Valdes, Alves, Pique, Puyol, Mascherano, Song, Cesc, Xavi, Villa, Messi, Thiago, Pinto, Bartra, Sergio, Pedro, Montoya, Adriano, Tello, Deulofeu
