Everton's Deulofeu to spend 6-8 weeks recovering in Barcelona
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona says forward Gerard Deulofeu, who is playing on loan at Everton this season, will spend 6-8 weeks at his parent club recovering from a leg injury.
Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Everton's 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Barcelona says that its team doctors will ''coordinate'' with Everton's medical staff as Deulofeu recovers.
The 19-year-old Deulofeu has played well for Everton coach Roberto Martinez, a fellow Catalan.
