Everton sign Barça's Mina and Gomes, Shakhtar's Bernard

Premier League transfer news deadline day

Premier League transfer news deadline day

Everton produced a remarkable end to the transfer window as they made three significant additions to Marco Silva's squad in Yerry Mina, Bernard and André Gomes.

Mina, who was in the sights of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, has signed a five-year deal for a fee potentially rising to €31.75milllion.

'I have watched the Premier League for a long time. It is the best league in the world.

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.

The Colombia defender signed for Everton yesterday afternoon, along with former Barca teammate Andre Gomes. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Everton were desparate for a solid center-back after Ashley Williams moved to Stoke City and used their strong connections with Barcelona to secure the deal. "I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here".

The 23-year-old only joined Barcelona from Palmeiras in the January transfer window.

Barcelona have included a set buy-back option in their deal with Everton for Yerry Mina. Muhamed Besic was lined up for a £6m return to Middlesbrough only for the deal to collapse late on while Everton rejected several loan offers for Yannick Bolasie, who they want to sell on a permanent basis.

"Every discussion we've had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game".
