Everton completed the signings of Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona and Brazilian free-agent winger Bernard on Thursday in a triple deadline-day swoop for the Premier League club.

Mina, a 23-year-old central defender who scored three goals in three games for Colombia at the World Cup, will move to Goodison Park in a 30.25 million euro (£27 million, $35 million) deal with the Catalan giants, plus 1.5 million more in add ons, Barcelona confirmed.

One of Mina's goals in Russia was against Everton's England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to send a dramatic last 16 tie into extra-time.

However, Mina failed to impress in just six appearances for Barca since signing from Palmeiras in January.

And Barca were keen to cash in on the 23-year-old, who cost just 11.8 million euros seven months ago.

Likewise, Portuguese international Gomes has failed to establish himself as a first team regular since joining from Valencia for an initial 35 million euro fee in 2016.

His season-long loan will cost the English club 2.25 million euros, Barca said in a statement.

Bernard, a 25-year-old capped 14 times by Brazil, was a free agent after his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk expired and said Portuguese manager Marco Silva played a big role in attracting him to the club.

"I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me,” Bernard told Evertontv.

"The manager made me feel confident about playing here. He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs.
