The Premier League side have been receptive to the winger's plea and, pending official confirmation, the former Barcelona man is optimistic. 

Watford train next Monday but both the coach -- Spaniard Javi Gracia -- and the owner -- Gino Pozzo -- are sensitive about Deulofeu's request. 

Gracia spent time playing for Catalan side Lleida as a player and Pozzo has spent a lot of time in the Catalan city of Barcelona. 

It's expected that Deulofeu will be granted permission to play for Catalonia in the match against Venezuela on March 25.
