A summer-long chase for Colombia's World Cup star Yerry Mina concluded with a £28.5 million deal with Barcelona, the defender joining former teammate Lucas Digne who moved to Everton last week.

Everton have completed the signing of Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, who was also being targeted by Manchester United for a move this summer.

The Spanish champions have a buy-back option in the deal, which comes little over six months since he arrived from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

Bernard, a 25-year-old capped 14 times by Brazil, was a free agent after his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk expired.

Barcelona followed that news with confirmation that Portugal midfielder Andre Gomes would also be moving to the Goodison Park club on a season-long loan.

I worked hard during my holiday and now I am ready to play and do important things with the Club.

Both sides have reached a deal and it will shortly be made official.

"Everton is historically the fourth most successful club in England", said Bernard. "This is a great opportunity for me", said Mina.

Gomes and Mina could be registered in time to face Wolves in the Premier League opener this Saturday, but that game may come too soon for them as they look to bed in at Everton. "I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here".
