Everton ace Gerard Deulofeu has reportedly sealed a short-term loan with Serie A giants AC Milan. The Spanish midfielder fell out-of-favour under Ronald Koeman in the first half of the season.

Deulofeu, 22, had been on the Rossoneri radar since the start of the transfer window, and the Italian club have now agreed on a loan package for his services.

The attacker did not have a fond return to Everton in the summer of 2015, and he will now seek to revive his career with Milan, who have had a dip in form in the Serie A of late.

Deulofeu had made just 11 appearances for the Toffees in the Premier League this season, with only four of them coming from the substitutes' bench.

Milan will monitor the player's progress during the second half of the campaign before lodging a permanent move for his signature in the summer.
