Deadline Day – Everton announces the signings of Bernard, Yerry Mina, and Andre Gomes.

Everton have officially announced the permanent signings of winger Bernard as well as Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Bernard joins the Toffees after his contract expired at Shakhtar Donetsk last season whilst Mina joins the club from Barcelona for a fee believed to be around £28.7m. Gomes also joins the club from the La Liga winners.

Barcelona and Everton have had a strong relationship in this window, with the clubs also agreeing to a deal for left-back Lucas Digne. In regards to the Mina transfer, the Spanish club have inserted a buy-back clause that can be activated at any time.

A host of Premier League clubs were reportedly interested in signing Bernard (like Arsenal and Liverpool) and Mina (like Manchester United), but it was Everton who were able to get both deals over the line. Also, the signing of Gomes will give the midfielder a fresh start in the Premier League where he’ll get some much-needed game-time.
