Yerry Mina reveals World Health Organization convinced him to sign for Toffees

Mina joins Everton on a five-year contract for a fee thought to be in the region of £27m, while Gomes jets in on a season-long loan deal.

Everton have agreed a deal to sign Yerry Mina, the defender leaving Barcelona after an unhappy six-month spell in La Liga.

Bernard was the first to be announced on a free transfer after his contract with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk ran out at the end of the past season.

Mina played alongside Digne during his half-season stint at the Catalan club, and like the Frenchman, spent much of his time at the Nou Camp subject to the reserves.

But Bernard instead opted to link up with Marco Silva at Goodison Park.

The Brazilian signed from Watford in a mega deal earlier this summer.

The Brazilian said new Everton boss Marco Silva convinced him to join the Toffees.

Gomes has always been a fringe player at Barcelona, despite signing for a fee of £31m plus €20m in add-ons in 2016, with only 46 appearances made in La Liga since joining from Valencia.

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 have watched the Premier League for a long time".

'That's really why I made the choice - because of the confidence both the manager and the club showed in me'.

Manchester United and Lyon had both tracked Colombia worldwide Mina, who signed a five-year deal after Barca sanctioned his £27.2 million sale.
