Everton fans reach on Twitter to brilliant deadline day

Everton fans reach on Twitter to brilliant deadline day”

Marco Silva's Everton looked to be heading into the 2018-19 season having only strengthened with Richarlison and Lucas Digne, but on Thursday they found agreements with Barcelona for Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes, while Brazil global Bernard signed on a free transfer following his Shakhtar Donetsk departure.

The Colombian centre-back had been linked to Manchester United and Lyon as well as the Toffees this summer.

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.

There was a predictably frantic conclusion to the last hours of business, the Premier League waiting to register ten players after the 5pm deadline, deal sheets submitted pending medicals and the agreement of personal terms. Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.

Barcelona confirmed the deal for Gomes that will see Everton pay the Portugal global midfielder's wages for the full season, while also paying a loan fee of £2m (€2.25m).

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

"Everton is historically the fourth most successful club in England", said Bernard.

'That's really why I made the choice - because of the confidence both the manager and the club showed in me'.

Everton signings Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

"I did not need any convincing to come here". But I was also convinced Everton could improve me and that I would be able to show my best as a player here'.
