Manchester United spent the entire summer transfer window scouring for a centre-back who could not just add solidity at the back but also be a leader in defence. However after the initial loan Southampton will have an obligation to buy the Englishman for £20 million.
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.
Everton brought in three new faces on the final day of the Premier League transfer window, swooping for Brazilian midfielder Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk and Barcelona players Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.
The defender will leave Camp Nou despite only joining in January, but the Catalan side have included a buy-back option in the deal.
"The manager made me feel confident about playing here".
Moments later they also confirmed that Portugal global Gomes would join the Premier League side on loan. Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.
Everton kick off their new Premier League campaign with a trip to Molineux to take on Wolves tomorrow, and Silva's men will have to be at their very best, if they are to return to Merseyside with anything to show for their efforts. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here. "He is a good guy and we want to do our best for Everton". Barcelona wanted 20 million euros for him but nobody was willing to put it on the table.
