Barcelona have buy-back option in Yerry Mina Everton deal

New Everton defender Yerry Mina says that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League.

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.

In the immortal words of one Larry David: preeeetty... preeeeetty... pretty good.

Michael Owen backed Everton to finish in seventh place in the Premier League table this term, when writing a blog for BETVICTOR, and shared what everyone has been telling him about the Toffees ahead of the season.

Everton's stunning final day of the summer transfer window has seen them confirm the arrivals of Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona.

The Spanish champions have a buy-back option in the deal, which comes little over six months since he arrived from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

"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", he said in a statement.

"That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the Club showed in me".

Mina wasn't alone in making the switch from Camp Nou to Goodison Park this week, with Barça midfielder Andre Gomes also joining Everton after agreeing a loan move.

Asked specifically about his chat with Silva, he continued: 'I did not need a lot of convincing. But I was also convinced Everton could improve me and that I would be able to show my best as a player here'.

The Merseyside club, who appointed Portuguese manager Marco Silva during the close-season, could add a fourth deadline day signing after the Liverpool Echo reported they had submitted a deal sheet in the hope of completing paperwork for a loan for Chelsea centre-half Kurt Zouma.
