Everton Agree Deal to Sign Mina From Barcelona

Everton Agree Deal to Sign Mina From Barcelona

There is a buy-back clause in the deal that took Yerry Mina to Everton from Barcelona on transfer deadline day, according to Spanish publication Marca.

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.

The La Liga champions confirmed Mina's move for a fee of around £27 million, saying they had an option to buy him back.

Everton will pay Barcelona £2m for the season long loan and will also pay the player's wages.

Mina had always been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer with the club's purchases of non-EU players in Malcom, Arthur and Arturo Vidal filling their quote per La Liga's rules.

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.




"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", he told evertontv. "This is a great opportunity for me", said Mina.

Both sides have reached a deal and it will shortly be made official.

"I did not need any convincing to come here".

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

'Marco's words helped me a lot because having a coach who believes in his ideas is important. I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team.
