New Everton defender Yerry Mina says that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League.

He has played 14 times for Brazil, scoring once, with his last global appearance coming at the 2014 World Cup.

Barcelona confirmed defender Yerry Mina has signed for Everton.

Everton and Fulham stole the show on the Premier League's transfer deadline day, as both clubs welcomed several eye-catching signings.

Earlier in the day, the Toffees snagged Bernard on a four-year contract, the Brazilian winger being a free agent after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk when his contract elapsed at the end of last season...

In the meantime, Everton will pay the Catalans 30.2 million, plus 2.2 in variables for the Colombian's services.


Left-back Joe Bryan secured a reported £7m switch from Bristol City after a strong season in the Championship and will hope to form a strong partnership with the highly rated Ryan Sessegnon, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah strengthens Fulham on the right side of defence following a loan departure from Manchester United.

However, Mina failed to impress in just six appearances for Barca since signing from Palmeiras in January.

Portugal worldwide Gomes endured even greater struggles at LaLiga's champions and has found an escape route in the shape of a season-long loan at Goodison Park, which will cost the Toffees €2.25million.

Mina, 23, only joined Barca six months ago from Palmeiras, but coach Ernesto Valverde has not been convinced by him and the club have chose to take advantage of his increased value following an impressive World Cup.

The 25-year-old has been capped 29 times by Portugal and was part of the squad that won the European Championships in 2016. Everton agreed a €2.25m (£2.02m) loan fee for the 25-year-old, who now has a minor injury but passed a medical held in Barcelona, and will pay his wages in full for the season.

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