Deulofeu heading out on loan
Everton’s Gerard Deulofeu has completed a loan deal to AC Milan until the end of the season.
The Spaniard has had limited opportunities in an Everton shirt since the arrival of new manager Ronald Koeman last summer, and has left to get some much-desired time on the pitch.
He passed his Milan medical on Monday, and the clubs have negotiated a loan fee.
Deulofeu spent a successful season on loan at Everton from Barcelona in 2013-14, and he returned to Merseyside on a permanent basis in the summer of 2015 under old manager Roberto Martinez.
But Koeman has used the Spaniard sparingly since taking charge, and Deulofeu has been restricted to 13 appearances this season.
