Everton fans reach on Twitter to brilliant deadline day

Everton struck deals to sign both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona on Thursday, as well as completing a move for Brazil worldwide Bernard before the transfer deadline.

He had been heavily linked with a move to Jose Mourinho's Manchester United during their hunt for a centre-back, but instead opted for a switch to Goodison Park. However after the initial loan Southampton will have an obligation to buy the Englishman for £20 million.

Mina's was impressive during this summer's World Cup and scored a last minute equaliser against England in their last-16 tie, one of three goals he netted in Russian Federation.

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.

"It is important that the club want to fight for something", Mina told EvertonTV.

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

Bernard began his professional career at Atletico Mineiro in 2010 before joining the Ukrainian champions three years later, where he won the Ukrainian Premier League, Ukrainian Super Cup and Ukrainian Cup three times each. It is the best league in the world.

Everton have agreed a deal to sign Yerry Mina, the defender leaving Barcelona after an unhappy six-month spell in La Liga. "This is a great opportunity for me", said Mina.

Mina, 23, only joined Barca six months ago from Palmeiras, but coach Ernesto Valverde has not been convinced by him and the club have made a decision to take advantage of his increased value following an impressive World Cup.

Portuguese midfielder Gomes is also set to swap the Nou Camp for Goodison as part of a season-long loan deal where he will link up with compatriot Silva. Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.

'The manager made me feel confident I wanted to play here because of what he's done in the past.
