Barcelona 'insert £54m buy-back clause' into Yerry Mina's Everton deal

Barcelona 'insert £54m buy-back clause' into Yerry Mina's Everton deal

Everton are conducting the final round of talks as they look to rush through deals for Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes before the 5pm Premier League deadline.

The Colombia defender departs Camp Nou just seven months after arriving from Palmeiras, having failed to dislodge Samuel Umtiti or Gerard Pique in his bid for regular minutes. Everton agreed a €2.25m (£2.02m) loan fee for the 25-year-old, who now has a minor injury but passed a medical held in Barcelona, and will pay his wages in full for the season. Bernard wanted £200,000 a week earlier in the summer but the 25-year-old ultimately lowered demands that had deterred interest from West Ham, Chelsea and Milan, among others.

A summer that started with the intention of balancing the books ended with a flourish as Farhad Moshiri, Everton's major shareholder, sanctioned a deal for Mina, which took the club's spending to about... "This is why I am here", he told his club website.

The Everton deals come as a frantic end to what has been a superb transfer window for the Toffees, with the club also bringing in Lucas Digne and Richarlison.




"I spoke with Andre, too". 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.

Gomes added: "I'm delighted to sign for this fantastic club - it's a good day for me". Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.

"The manager made me feel confident about playing here".
