Everton Sign Andre Gomes

The Toffees have paid around €2.25million (£1.7m) in a loan fee to sign Portugal midfielder Gomes - who has previously been linked with Arsenal this summer.

The defender will leave Camp Nou despite only joining in January, but the Catalan side have included a buy-back option in the deal.

There was a predictably frantic conclusion to the last hours of business, the Premier League waiting to register ten players after the 5pm deadline, deal sheets submitted pending medicals and the agreement of personal terms.

"Everyone I have spoken to about Marco Silva has been full of praise for the new Everton manager and I think the Blues will win the division without the "Big Six" this term".

It was also a good day for Leicester City, who, not only managed to keep hold of Harry Maguire amid reported interest from United, but also brought in the well-regarded young defender Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg, tied Jamie Vardy down to a new deal and signed Croatia Under-21 worldwide Filip Benkovic.

"Every discussion we've had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game".

"Everton is historically the fourth most successful club in England", said Bernard.

Mina has signed on a permanent five-year deal worth €30million (approx £27.2million), while Portugal worldwide Gomes has arrived at Goodison on a one-season loan.

Asked specifically about his chat with Silva, he continued: 'I did not need a lot of convincing.

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