Video: Gerard Deulofeu displays his work-rate in the gym

The new Everton signing has been working hard in training.

Those who praised Everton for signing Gerard Deulofeu - and there were plenty of them - will be even more encouraged after the Spaniard posted a video of his work-rate on Twitter on Thursday evening.

Indeed, the Barcelona man was signed on a permanent deal by the Toffees recently, with the BBC reporting the fee being as low as £4.3 million.

What a bargain. And what a work-rate Deulofeu has in his locker if his training video is anything to go by.

The 21-year-old has in the past been advised to listen more and perhaps improve his attitude but his latest social media venture suggests he is very willing indeed to work as hard as possible ahead of the 'challenges' that face him at Everton.

Deulofeu is now even more experienced than when he first joined the Toffees, having undergone a loan spell at Sevilla since. And the youngster could be set to inspire the Goodison Park crowd.

Maybe put the above video on mute due to the Spaniard's choice of music... but the 21-year-old is looking in his groove ahead of the new season with Everton.
