Yerry Mina

Barcelona confirmed defender Yerry Mina has signed for Everton.

It was a busy transfer deadline for Everton as they bought Yerry Mina from Barcelona for a fee of around £27 million with a buy back option inserted from the La Liga champions.

The Colombian centre-back had been linked to Manchester United and Lyon as well as the Toffees this summer.

Bernard, also 25, has signed a four-year deal with the Merseyside club after his contract at Shakhtar ran out in June.

Speaking about why he wanted to join, the 23-year-old told the club's website that he discussed Everton with fellow teammate Lucas Digne - who played alongside Mina at Camp Nou - before making the switch.

There was a predictably frantic conclusion to the last hours of business, the Premier League waiting to register ten players after the 5pm deadline, deal sheets submitted pending medicals and the agreement of personal terms.

The Colombian worldwide completed a £28.5million switch from Barcelona on Thursday, having been the subject of heavy interest from Manchester United and Lyon. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here.

Everton have signed Portugal worldwide Andre Gomes on a season-long loan from Barcelona.

A loan fee of around £2million was agreed, with Everton also picking up the cost of the player's wages.

"I worked hard during my holiday and now I am ready to play and do important things with the Club".

"That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the Club showed in me".
