Everton complete triple deal for Mina, Andre Gomes and Bernard

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. However after the initial loan Southampton will have an obligation to buy the Englishman for £20 million.

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.

Portugal worldwide Gomes endured even greater struggles at LaLiga's champions and has found an escape route in the shape of a season-long loan at Goodison Park, which will cost the Toffees €2.25million.

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

'They are historically among the four most successful clubs in England and when I found out about the club and what the manager wanted from me, I was happy.

Mina scored three times in three games in Russian Federation, including against Everton's England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with a dramatic stoppage-time header to send their last-16 tie to extra-time. "I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here".

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.

The 25-year-old has won 14 caps for Brazil and arrives at Goodison Park before the close of the transfer window. Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.

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.
