Yerry Mina completes Everton move

Noah Ferguson | 10 August, 2018, 14:53

Everton have reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign Colombia defender Yerry Mina for 30.25m euros (£27.19m), while signing Mina's team-mate Andre Gomes on loan.

Manchester United had been competing with the Toffees for Mina, but the Old Trafford club pulled out of negotiations that morning.

Everton, who finished eighth in the Premier League last season, have always been viewed as the side most likely to mount a challenge to break into the illustrious top six.

'The manager made me feel confident I wanted to play here because of what he's done in the past.

Bernard was the first to be announced on a free transfer after his contract with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk ran out at the end of the past season.

He cited Marco Silva as a key reason behind leaving Catalonia for England and claimed that "everyone in Portugal" knows of the 41-year-old's "qualities" as a manager in his interview with Everton's site.

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

Asked specifically about his chat with Silva, he continued: 'I did not need a lot of convincing.

Mina has signed on a permanent five-year deal worth €30million (approx £27.2million), while Portugal global Gomes has arrived at Goodison on a one-season loan.

The Merseyside club, who appointed Portuguese manager Marco Silva during the off-season, could add a fourth deadline day signing after the Liverpool Echo reported they had submitted a deal sheet in the hope of completing paperwork for a loan for Chelsea centre half Kurt Zouma.
