Everton deny AC Milan claim they have loaned Gerard Deulofeu
Gerard Deulofeu has found first-team football at Everton hard to come by this season
AC Milan claim to have signed Gerard Deulofeu on loan, but Everton have denied the deal has gone through.
The Italian club announced the deal on their Twitter account on Friday evening, saying Deulofeu has joined until June 30.
But Everton say no deal has been done, and that talks between the two clubs - which have been ongoing for 10 days - have not reached a conclusion.
The 22-year-old Spaniard, who was signed from Barcelona in 2015, has found his playing time limited since Ronald Koeman took over in the summer.
Deulofeu has made just 13 appearances for the Toffees this season and has been left out of recent matchday squads.
The emergence of 18-year-old Tom Davies and the signing of fellow teenager Ademola Lookman, both of whom starred in the 4-0 win over Manchester City last weekend, had pushed Deulofeu further down the pecking order.
