Deal done: Watford complete permanent signing of Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona


Watford are reported to have agreed on a €13m, plus €4m in variables, whilst Barca will receive an undisclosed percentage of any future transfer after the Spain worldwide agreed on a permanent return.

Gerard Deulofeu has signed for Watford for an initial £11.5m fee on a five-year deal from Barcelona.

On Monday, Watford chief executive Scott Duxbury insisted the move shows the club are constantly striving to improve.

The 24-year-old, who joined Watford on-loan in January, made seven appearances in the league for the English side last season.

"Our ambition to succeed and grow in the Premier League remains as strong as ever".

He slimmed down over the winter and came to spring training this year with a chance to compete for the starting job at first base. At least if they don't stick Jay Bruce at first base and move their outfield parts around once Yoenis Cespedes comes back.

Deulofeu came through the academy at Barcelona and was widely expected to be a future first-team star but things never quite worked out for him at Camp Nou.

The ex-Barcelona youth player has previously had two spells in the Premier League with Everton.

Following loan spells with Everton and Sevilla, he made a permanent move to Goodison Park in 2014.

Deulofeu then joined Barcelona again after impressing on loan at San Siro, playing 17 times under Ernesto Valverde.

And after impressing at an inconsistent Watford, Javi Gracia has chose to snap him up on a permanent deal.
