Deulofeu joins AC Milan from Everton on loan

Liverpool - Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu's on-off loan move to Serie A giants AC Milan from Everton finally went through on Monday, the Premier League side announced.

The 22-year-old former Barcelona player -- capped once by Spain -- has played just 13 times for Everton this season.

The loan deal is util the end of the present campaign.

"Gerard Deulofeu has joined AC Milan on loan until the end of the season," read the statement on the Everton website.

"The 22-year-old winger arrived at Goodison Park in the summer of 2013 on a season-long loan before returning on a permanent deal in July 2015.

"He has scored eight goals in 75 appearances across his two spells and now moves to the San Siro looking to gain more game time."

Everton had been infuriated on Friday when Milan -- who are presently seventh in Serie A 11 points adrift of leaders Juventus -- announced the loan deal and the Italian side eventually removed the story from their website.
