The 19-year-old joined Everton on a season-long deal from the Spanish champions last summer and has been impressive at Goodison Park.

However, Deulofeu, who has scored two goals in 15 Premier League appearances this season, is eager to go back to his parent club Barca and cement a place in their starting line-up.

"I am working every day to get back to Barcelona next season," he told Catalunya Radio. "I watch all their matches and believe that they are having a good season.

"My dream is to find a place in the Barcelona attacking line-up and to do that I am progressing in the Premier League.

"I accepted the challenge last summer and I am happy with my decision. Now I am more mature as a person and as a footballer.

"Perhaps people at Barcelona do not have confidence in me, but that is normal.

"I am a young player and normally the coaches do not believe in the young players."
