Mina, Gomes deals confirmed as Everton complete Barcelona raid

Everton have beaten the clock to sign Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk

Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes join Everton

Everton produced a remarkable end to the transfer window as they made three significant additions to Marco Silva's squad in Yerry Mina, Bernard and André Gomes.

The Colombian has signed five-year deal with the club after moving from Barcelona for a fee of around £28million.

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.

Several Premier League sides including West Ham and Chelsea had been in the hunt for the Brazilian winger while AC Milan also expressed an interest.

"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 Evertontv.

'I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team. He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs.

Brighton and Hove Albion secured defensive reinforcement in the shape of former Barcelona right-back Martin Montoya, who joins from Valencia on a four-year deal.

Everton's new manager wanted two central defenders before the deadline and was hoping to get his wish with a second loan signing, that of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea.

"I spoke to Lucas and he told me all about the Club, which also made me keen to come here".
