Everton have wrapped up what proved to be a highly active transfer deadline day by confirming that both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have joined the club from Barcelona.

Everton have signed Portugal global Andre Gomes on a season-long loan from Barcelona.

The Colombian has signed five-year deal with the club after moving from Barcelona for a fee of around £28million.

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

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.

Silva has been desperate to bolster Everton's defence all summer and had been linked with a number of targets, such as Manchester United's Marcus Rojo and Newcastle's Jamaal Lascelles, but Mina was his top target.
