Everton complete deals for Mina and Gomes

"When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy".

"I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team".

The Toffees were not finished there as Barcelona confirmed the Toffees had signed both Mina and Gomes.

'I have watched the Premier League for a long time.

"I spoke with Andre (Gomes), too".

Everton have beaten the clock to secure the transfer of Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Bernard before the window closed, the club announced on their official website.

At global level, he was also part of the Brazil team who won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and played for his country at their home World Cup in 2014.

Fellow Barca bench player Andre Gomes has also made a decision to join the Toffees on a loan deal after consultation with Mina.

Mina, for whom Barca have retained a buy-back option, said the chance to play alongside Gomes and Lucas Digne - who made the same switch last week - played a part in his decision to join Marco Silva's men.

The 23-year-old had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but the Toffees have won the race, shelling out almost £30million.

And speaking about his desires for his new side, Mina revealed he has sights set high.

All three players could be in line to feature when Everton begin their domestic campaign against newly promoted Wolves.

Mina's stock soared during Colombia's run in the World Cup in which he was responsible for three goals, allowing Barcelona to make over three times what they paid.
