MIna: I want to win things at Everton

Everton have confirmed the captures of Barcelona pair Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes on a busy deadline day that also saw winger Bernard arrive on a free.

Everton signed Yerry Mina among other players in the summer transfer window.

With a little less than two hours left for Premier League sides to do deals, Everton are cutting it close but they remain confident of taking both deals over the line in time. Six months later and after a good World Cup, they have moved him on for nearly three times what they paid for him, despite him never quite performing during his short stay.

Everton have a good squad, and with a new manager in Marco Silva now in charge of the Toffees, the Goodison Park faithful should be excited about the season ahead.

The fee could rise by 1.5 million euros (RM7.1 million), and Barcelona have inserted a buy-back clause in the player's contract. I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful.

However, according to Spanish outlet Marca, the Catalan giants will be granted first option on Mina if they want to bring him back to the Nou Camp in the future.

"Every discussion we've had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game". Manchester United academy graduate Michael Keane had failed to be a solution for Everton upon joining from Burnley, while Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka were clearly past their best.

Everton have signed three players from Barcelona and Shakhtar Donetsk.
