Everton youngster Gerard Deulofeu, who is on loan from Barcelona, has revealed his intention to return at Camp Nou at the end of the season, according to Spanish reports.

Deulofeu is considered the best talent to emerge from the Barcelona academy since Lionel Messi but after Neymar's arrival last summer the club decided to send him on loan to Everton to continue his development.

The 19-year-old, who has scored two goals in 15 Premier League appearances this season, was asked in an interview with Catalunya Radio about his future and he said: "I am working every day to get back to Barcelona next season.

"My main goal is to find a place in the attacking line-up," he added.

However, the young player said he is happy with how things are going at Everton. He does not regret moving to the Premier League in search of more minutes and thought about the possible causes which made the club to seek a transfer.

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

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

Deulofeu, who has just recovered from a muscle injury that has kept him out of action for more than two months, said jokingly that "Barca look good but I think they would be much better if I was there."

Before his injury at Fulham, the young Catalan was excelling with a string of star performances, culminating in a wonder goal against Arsenal.

Barcelona are keen to rejuvenate their squad the next year and the team has already confirmed the signings of Croatian prodigy Alen Halilovic, 17, and German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, 21.

Teams like AC Milan are also monitoring Deulofeu's situation, in the hope that Barcelona allowing him to leave for a second spell on loan next summer.
