Everton complete triple deadline day signings as Bernard joins Barcelona duo

Grant SmithAug 10, 2018

The fee represents a healthy profit for the Spanish champions, who signed Mina from Palmeiras for €11.8m (£10.6m) only in January and obtained a buy-back option in the deal.

As the 25-year-old finalised his move to Merseyside, Everton also sealed the captures of Barcelona duo Mina and Gomes on Thursday afternoon.

Left-back Joe Bryan secured a reported £7m switch from Bristol City after a strong season in the Championship and will hope to form a strong partnership with the highly rated Ryan Sessegnon, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah strengthens Fulham on the right side of defence following a loan departure from Manchester United.

Barca can re-sign the defender for a cool €60m.

Manchester United and Lyon had both tracked Colombia global Mina, who signed a five-year deal after Barca sanctioned his £27.2 million sale.

Colombia defender Mina, who impressed in the World Cup, could eventually cost €31.75million, while Gomes arrives on a season-long loan.

Everton signed Yerry Mina for 30.25 million euros, André Gomes on a one-season loan deal, and Bernard on a free transfer.

Everton are conducting the final round of talks as they look to rush through deals for Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes before the 5pm Premier League deadline. The France worldwide, who spent last season on loan at Stoke City, had also been linked with Old Trafford but was in line to become Everton's fourth recruit of the day after paperwork was submitted moments before the 5pm deadline.

"It is important that the club want to fight for something".

Michael Owen backed Everton to finish in seventh place in the Premier League table this term, when writing a blog for BETVICTOR, and shared what everyone has been telling him about the Toffees ahead of the season.

He said: "I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me".
