Marco Silva will not consider deadline day signings for Wolves trip

Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes join Everton

Despite disclosing the transfer fee, Barça did not reveal at what price the buy-back clause is set, but a report from Marca has claimed that it is €60m (£53.9m).

Everton produced a remarkable end to the transfer window as they made three significant additions to Marco Silva's squad in Yerry Mina, Bernard and André Gomes.

Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes joined Bernard as Everton sealed a hat-trick of deadline day signings.

During negotiations for Mina, Everton were offered Gomes on a season-long loan, the Portugal midfielder having struggled at Barcelona since his €35m (£31.5m) arrival from Valencia two years ago.

Leicester City signed Croatian defender Filip Benkovic from Dinamo Zagreb and Turkish centre back Caglar Soyuncu from Bundesliga club Freiburg and they also secured their England striker Jamie Vardy to a new four-year contract.

Upon joining Everton, Mina told evertontv, "It is important that the club want to fight for something".

Gomes has always been a fringe player at Barcelona, despite signing for a fee of £31m plus €20m in add-ons in 2016, with only 46 appearances made in La Liga since joining from Valencia. "He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs", he said in a statement. "This is a great opportunity for me", said Mina.

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

But Tottenham Hotspur ended the window as the only club not to bring in a new player while Manchester United were unable to bring in the central defender they were reported to be keen to recruit.

Asked specifically about his chat with Silva, he continued: 'I did not need a lot of convincing.
