Everton Complete Triple Deal For Bernard, Mina, and Andre Gomes

Everton Complete Triple Deal For Bernard, Mina, and Andre Gomes

Everton struck deals to sign both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona on Thursday, as well as completing a move for Brazil worldwide Bernard before the transfer deadline.

Mina also said that speaking with Lucas Digne and fellow newcomer Andre Gomes helped him decide that Everton was his preferred destination.

The 23-year-old Mina, who was impressive in defence at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation where he also scored three goals, will rejuvenate an ageing Everton back line while offering a threat from set-pieces at the other end of the pitch.

The Brazilian signed from Watford in a mega deal earlier this summer.

He has played 14 times for Brazil, scoring once, with his last worldwide appearance coming at the 2014 World Cup.

Yerry Mina has vowed to seize "a great opportunity" after becoming the standout signing on a frantic transfer deadline day for Everton.

Many players ticketed for new locales stayed put past Thursday's Premier League summer transfer deadline.

Everton will open their 2018-19 Premier League campaign against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Hoping to get back to the level he showed in his first season at Valencia, Gomes will play on loan at Goodison Park for the season, with Everton paying Barca €2.25million for the right to take him for the campaign.

Next to follow was Mina from Barcelona, as the Colombian centre-back joined the Toffees for a fee of £27m - though the La Liga champions have revealed they do have a buy-back clause in his contract.

And Barca were keen to cash in on the 23-year-old, who cost just 11.8 million euros seven months ago.

Having not had any game time since scoring in Colombia's loss to England in the World Cup Round of 16, it is thought Mina would be lacking match fitness.
