Everton boss Martinez: Deulofeu has incredible potential

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is confident Gerard Deulofeu will make a big impact in the Premier League.

The Barcelona winger signed for Everton on-loan last month.

Martinez said: "To say that Gerard is a talented boy is an understatement. He's got incredible potential - that really raw talent that any fan wants to watch.

"We need to be a little bit patient because Gerard needs to adapt to a different way of playing, in a league with a different physicality, but that was always the plan; to give Gerard a steady introduction.

"Slowly you're going to see a player that's going to develop, grow and give us some incredible memories at Everton I'm sure."
