FC Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have joined Everton

The 23-year-old Mina, who was impressive in defence at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation where he also scored three goals, will rejuvenate an ageing Everton back line while offering a threat from set-pieces at the other end of the pitch.

Mina, who was linked with a move to Manchester United, joins the Toffees on a permanent deal worth €30.25 million.

Tickets are on sale for The 148th Open at Royal Portrush, Northern Ireland with members of The One Club guaranteed first access to tickets. The club reserves the right to buy back the player. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Yerry Mina will be joined by another Barcelona player in the Premier LeagueWhat's the rumour?

For me, it was really good to speak to him because I know how good he is and I feel motivated to work with him and to play for Everton, a great club.

Manchester United linked with shock deadline day move for Diego Godin
And The Sun say Manchester United manager Mourinho is livid at Godin's agent, who he believes led the club on. But Express Sport understands there is no chance of the Croatia global moving to Old Trafford.

"Barcelona would like to publicly express their thanks to Yerry Mina for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future". Left-back Lucas Digne moved to the Toffees from Barca recently.

Andre Gomes, Barcelona's Portuguese central midfielder, has been loaned to Everton. He has made just six appearances during his time in Spain.

The 25-year-old has been capped 29 times by Portugal and was part of the squad that won the European Championships in 2016.

Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016 for (£31.46) €35m but has struggled to nail down a starting place at the Nou Camp.
