Everton have signed defender Yerry Mina on a five-year deal from Barcelona.

Mina, who impressed for Colombia at this summer's World Cup, had been pursued hard by the Blues since his exploits in Russian Federation.

"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", Bernard told the club's wbesite. "This is why I am here".

Everton and Fulham stole the show on the Premier League's transfer deadline day, as both clubs welcomed several eye-catching signings. As for Gomes, it would be a great chance on loan to resurrect his career to previous heights and make a nark in the world's best league. "I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here". I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful.

A loan fee of around £2million was agreed, with Everton also picking up the cost of the player's wages.

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.

Two Eagles players raised their fists in Philadelphia, a Dolphins player did likewise in Miami, and two Dolphins took a knee . The first full day of National Football League preseason games produced plenty of exciting plays on offense and defense.

"We signed players because they thought we are a big club as well", Silva said.

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

BBC reports that Mina's arrival means Everton have spent more than £60m in the past two weeks following the initial £35m arrival of Brazilian winger Richarlison from Watford, a deal that could rise to £50m. He has made just six appearances during his time in Spain.

Portuguese midfielder Gomes is also set to swap the Nou Camp for Goodison as part of a season-long loan deal where he will link up with compatriot Silva.

The 25-year-old has been capped 29 times by Portugal and was part of the squad that won the European Championships in 2016.
