Everton have beaten the clock to sign Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk

Everton completed the signings of Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona and Brazilian free-agent winger Bernard on Thursday in a triple deadline-day swoop for the Premier League club.

The arrival of Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich further limited his chances of featuring for the Catalan based club. The Barcelona duo have moved to the north of England.

"Bernard is a great player, a player for the Brazilian national team, and I also followed his progress with Atletico Mineiro", Richarlison said on Wednesday. He will compete for places with Gylfi Sigurdsson, Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davis.

"It is important that the club want to fight for something", Mina told EvertonTV.

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.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Reveals New Details About Upcoming Streaming Service
A recent report implied that Disney was in talks to reacquire the cable rights for the original trilogy and the prequels. According to the earnings call, the new Disney streaming service will be cheaper than Netflix.


Barcelona said they reserve the right to buy Mina back, while Gomes has cost Everton a £2m loan fee. Meanwhile Gomes moves on loan for the season for 2.25 million.

Bernard joined Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, and has risen throughout his time with the Ukrainian giants.

Many Barca fans were against Gomes' signing even before he joined after a somewhat underwhelming second campaign at Valencia, and he has never been able to rediscover his best form at Camp Nou.

Birmingham City have confirmed on their official website that they have signed Gary Gardner on a season-long loan from rivals Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old has been capped 29 times by Portugal and was part of the squad that won the European Championships in 2016.
