A summer-long chase for Colombia's World Cup star Yerry Mina concluded with a £28.5 million deal with Barcelona, the defender joining former teammate Lucas Digne who moved to Everton last week. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here.

Everton beat a host of Premier League and European clubs to the signing of Bernard with the Brazilian global becoming Marco Silva's fourth signing of the summer after Richarlison, Digne and Virginia.

Chelsea have been linked with Martial all summer, but United have shown no willingness to let him go, especially to a fellow Premier League side.

At worldwide level, he was also part of the Brazil team who won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and played for his country at their home World Cup in 2014.

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

The Spaniard arrived to replaced Thibaut Courtois who joined Real Madrid earlier on Thursday evening. He also helped Belgium achieve a third-place finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. "I was very young".

Everton begin their Premier League campaign away to Wolves at Molineux on August 11 before they host Southampton on Merseyside a week later on August 18.

Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016 for (£31.46) €35m but has struggled to nail down a starting place at the Nou Camp.

Everton had an eventful deadline day, making no fewer than four big-name signings, including Bernard, Gomes, Kurt Zouma and Mina.

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.

Portuguese midfielder Gomes, 25, will join on a season-long loan at a cost of 2.25 million euros for the English club.
