Watford

Deulofeu staying with Hornets

28th January 2019, 15:16 by Neil Foster

Reports claim that forward Gerard Deulofeu will not be leaving Watford in January despite interest from bigger clubs.

Having joined the Hornets on-loan from Barcelona in January 2018, the 24-year-old has made 23 appearances in all competitions and scored two goals.

The Spain international missed the start of the season due to injury but has seen more game time of late and enjoyed 16 top-flight outings this term.

He spent the second half of the 2016-17 campaign with Serie A side Milan and reports suggest that the Rossoneri are keen for a reunion with the former Everton man.

However, it is being reported that the Hertfordshire outfit have no intention of letting the player quit mid-season and see him as a vital cog in Javi Gracia's machine.

Deulofeu has scored three times in the league this season and it appears as though he will remain with the club until the end of the campaign as Watford seek to stay top of the teams outside the top six.
