Unlike the first half of the season when he was at Barça, the winger feels important at the club and it seems his intention is to remain in England, despite the fact his contract with Watford runs out at the end of the season.

He does not want to return to Barcelona, especially after what he has experienced in the last two seasons.

In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Deulofeu recognised it would be difficult for him to return to Barça  given the overbooking in the team's forward line.

"Watford coach Javi Gracia has told me he wants me to stay at Watford, and it's clear that I won't return to Barça, I don't think Valverde wants me to return. I just have to wait and see what happens," he said.

"I've just come back from injury after months out, after fracturing the fifth metatarsal. I played my first few minutes and we'll see what happens in the future.

"We will speak to the coach. We have to take it slowly, analyse the situation carefully and see what happens. I need to be calm. I wanted to go out on loan, and I don't think I'm coming back to Barcelona."

Deulofeu was loaned to Watford in January and the Premier League club have the option to buy him permanently.
