Watford sign Deulofeu from Barca

Watford have completed the loan signing of out-of-favour Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu for the remainder of the season.

The 23-year-old has started only five league games so far this season and had been strongly linked to Italian giants Inter, Milan and Napoli.

The fleet-footed forward has experience of playing in England, having made 62 Premier League appearances for Everton across two spells, scoring five times.

Deulofeu returned to the Camp Nou in summer in a €12m deal from Everton this summer after spending the second half of last season on loan at Milan.

He is the first signing of new Watford boss Javi Gracia, who has previously led Osasuna, Almeria and Malaga.
