Spanish Under-21 star says he has grown as a footballer and as a person during his loan spell in England.
Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu has thanked Everton and their supporters for making this season “so special”.
The 20-year-old, who has only made five substitute appearances for Barca’s first team, featured in 25 Premier League games for the Toffees during a loan spell at Goodison Park.
He scored three goals for the Merseyside club, providing three assists too.
Deulofeu is unlikely to return to Everton, after new Barca boss Luis Enrique announced that he would be part of his plans next season.
