Deulofeu Delighted With Hornets Switch Decision

Gerard Deulofeu claims he had some doubts about joining Watford in the summer, but he is “proud” he did as it was “the best option”. The 24-year-old sealed a permanent £11.5million deal at Vicarage Road in July having impressed in a loan spell from Barcelona during the second half of last season when he scored one goal in seven league appearances.



Deulofeu admitted that it was a big decision to leave a club with the stature of Barca, but he wanted a move back to England, having enjoyed a spell at Everton in the past, while he was also keen for regular first-team action which was not forthcoming at the Nou Camp.



And, following his return from injury in the win at Wolves last month, Deulofeu claims he is delighted to be a part of Javi Gracia’s squad. “I love the Premier League, I’ve been here on loan and feel comfortable. I feel really good with my team-mates. Now I am proud of signing here,” he told Sky Sports.


“When I signed I felt we could have a great season, it has started well so I am happy to be here. “I had some doubts in the summer, but it is normal because I had some other offers. I chose Watford because it is the best option.”


He added: “I want to play a regular season and play minutes, enjoying with my team. Sometimes you are in a big team and you didn’t even enjoy it like you can enjoy it here, that’s why I’m here.”
