Gerard Deulofeu: Confident he can make a positive impact at Everton

The 19-year-old has moved to Goodison Park on a season-long loan from Barcelona and cannot wait to dazzle Everton fans with the skills he has learned from the likes of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

The Spaniard said: "I'm an attacking player and I can play wide. I'm quite quick, quite decent at one-on-one situations and I'm looking forward very much to helping the Everton team.

"Obviously training at Barcelona is a fantastic experience. You train alongside players like Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta, who are clearly some of the best players in the world.

"To learn from them is a very nice experience."

Deulofeu scored 18 times in 32 appearances for Bareclona's B side last season and starred at this summer's Under-20 World Cup in Israel, netting a brace in Spain's 4-1 group-stage win over USA.

Due to his international involvement, Deulofeu is enjoying a short break before linking up with Everton for pre-season training.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting my new teammates and getting started," he said.

"Obviously I have got a few days holiday coming my way because I have just finished in the tournament, but I can't wait to get started."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
