Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu completes loan to AC Milan until the end of the season

Milan, Italy – Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu has joined Italian side AC Milan on loan until the end of the season, Everton and AC Milan have confirmed.

Deulofeu passed a medical on Monday and joins until the end of the season after limited opportunities under Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park, making 13 appearances this season.

Koeman last week said the player would be allowed to leave to “get game time”.

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.

Milan, currently seventh in Serie A and 11 points behind leaders Juventus, mistakenly announced the signing of Deulofeu on their Twitter account on Friday, before multiple reports said Everton officials were furious at the Italian side’s premature announcement.

Milan then deleted the tweet, leaving confusion until Milan CEO Adriano Galliani told Mediaset Premium on Saturday that talks were still ongoing.
