Everton frustrated missing out on Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu

Everton management is frustrated missing out on Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu.

The Times says Everton are regretting not exercising their option to re-sign Deulofeu from Barcelona.

Under the terms of the deal that took him back to the Nou Camp, the Blues could have re-signed the Spaniard for £9.5million.

However, after sounding out the Toffees about signing the forward, the Catalan giants were informed he wouldn't fit with Marco Silva's game plan, so he was sold to Watford for £11.3million instead.

The 25-year-old has seven goals to his name to so far this season and has helped Watford to eighth in the Premier League and reach the FA Cup semi-finals.
