Koeman open to Deulofeu loan deal

Liverpool - Everton manager Ronald Koeman is willing to let Gerard Deulofeu go out on loan to find game time.

The Spaniard appears to be surplus to requirements at Goodison Park, and Koeman is sympathetic to his situation, saying that he would be open to offers for the player.

"In Geri's situation the best is that he finds game time somewhere," Koeman told the press.

"I spoke to Geri and it's a difficult situation for the player.

"If he finds a solution to go and to get game time then okay it's no problem.

"But the final decision is by the board of the club to accept an agreement or not."

The winger is reportedly being pursued by Serie A giants AC Milan, who want to loan him with an option to buy at the end of the season.

High-flying Everton next travel to Selhurst Park to face a struggling Crystal Palace side with newly-appointed manager Sam Allardyce yet to taste victory in the league.

Kick off is at 17:00.
