Busy Everton end transfer deadline day satisfied thanks to arrivals from Barcelona

Mina, the Colombia centre-half who scored against Jordan Pickford at the World Cup, was a priority signing for Silva amid concern over his central defensive options.

Colombian International Yerry Mina is close to finalising a permanent switch to English Premier League side Everton from Barcelona.

"It is important that the club want to fight for something". It is the best league in the world.

Everton had a dramatic end to the window, also wrapping up deals for Brazilian playmaker Bernard and Andre Gomes, the Portuguese midfielder who had also been at Barcelona. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

However, as Barcelona signed three South American players this summer, it became abundantly clear that Mina will become an expendable, with his departure only a matter of time. I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful.

Barcelona have been trying to offload the duo all summer and it seems they will be able to succeed by the transfer window slams shut in England at 5pm. Meanwhile, Lucas Digne left Barça to sign for Everton earlier in the summer. The France worldwide, who spent last season on loan at Stoke City, had also been linked with Old Trafford but was in line to become Everton's fourth recruit of the day after paperwork was submitted moments before the 5pm deadline.

However, Manchester United were put off by the excessive demands made by the player's agents, which ultimately resulted in them pulling the plug on the move.
