Spain winger Gerard Deulofeu has put pen to paper on a two-year contract after completing a medical, sealing the 23-year-old’s Barcelona return.

The La Liga giants exercised a buy-back clause two weeks ago in the 2015 deal that saw the 23-year-old move to Goodison Park,  after he impressed while on loan at AC Milan during the second half of last season.

Deulofeu, 23, completed his medical at Barcelona on Friday before signing a contract running until June 2019.

Barca did not disclose the fee paid for Deulofeu, although it has been widely reported to be €12-million.

Fullback Nelson Semedo is set to be unveiled as the second signing of Ernesto Valverde’s tenure at Camp Nou later on Friday.
