On Thursday evening, Barcelona officially announced the transfer of Yerry Mina to Everton, although the Catalan club will have the option to repurchase the player if they so desire.

The 25-year-old, who has previously been linked with Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, also branded Everton a "fantastic club" upon his arrival.

Andre Gomes says that Everton boss Marco Silva played a huge role in him deciding to join the Toffees from Barcelona.

"It is important that the Club want to fight for something", Mina told evertontv.

Mina had always been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer with the club's purchases of non-EU players in Malcom, Arthur and Arturo Vidal filling their quote per La Liga's rules.

The Toffees have also signed Brazilian winger Bernard on a permanent deal.

Everton had a dramatic end to the window, wrapping up deals for Bernard - the Brazil global who arrived on a free from Shakthar Donetsk - and Andre Gomes, the Portuguese midfielder who had also been at Barcelona. Everton is a club with a great structure and a lot of tradition, historically the fourth most successful club in England. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here.

"I did not need any convincing to come here".

"I have watched the Premier League for a long time".

Speaking about why he wanted to join, the 23-year-old told the club's website that he discussed Everton with fellow teammate Lucas Digne - who played alongside Mina at Camp Nou - before making the switch.
