Yerry Mina relishing Everton challenge

Andre Gomes #21 of FC Barcelona controls the ball in front of Moussa Sissoko #17 of Tottenham Hotspur at Rose Bowl

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.

Everton have won the race for his signature with the attacking midfielder signing a four-year contract.

Everton clinched the signing of their top defensive target, Yerry Mina, in a potential £28.5million deal as Marco Silva made three deadline-day signings to continue the reshaping of his squad.

Manchester United had expected to sign Mina after submitting a fresh £35million bid for the Colombia defender earlier this week.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have since had an approach for Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin knocked back by the Spanish club.

And Mina was followed to Everton by Barcelona teammate Andre Gomes, with the Catalan club confirming his move on an initial season-long loan with a fee of £2m.


Minutes before the English transfer deadline closed on Thursday, Everton also announced the signing of Brazil playmaker Bernard on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk.

"I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful". Both sides have reached a deal and it will shortly be made official.

"I don't know anything at the moment but if he were to come here he would be very welcome and he would help the team a great deal. I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here".

Barcelona have found Gomes an escape after a torrid time with them.

The Brazilian said new Everton boss Marco Silva convinced him to join the Toffees.
