Barcelona have confirmed that they have re-signed Gerard Deulofeu from Everton after exercising the buy-back option.

Barça inserted the buy-back option into Deulofeu’s contract when he moved to Goodison Park in 2015 and the deal will keep him at the club until June 2019.

After initially impressing at Everton, the 23-year-old was sent on loan to Sevilla and then last season to AC Milan.

He scored four goals and provided four assists in 31 assists for the Serie A giants.

A statement on Barcelona’s official website read:

“FC Barcelona have activated the buy-back clause for Gerard Deulofeu. In the following days, the terms will be agreed with both Everton and the player. Deulofeu’s contract will run until 30 June 2019.”

According to The Mirror, Barcelona plan to sell Deulofeu again this summer. Deulofeu reportedly wants regular first-team action and is unlikely to get that at the Nou Camp.
