MIna: I want to win things at Everton


"When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy".

As the transfer window closed with Manchester United unable to land another centre-back, Tottenham Hotspur failing to make any summer signings and Jack Grealish remaining an Aston Villa player, the Merseyside club emerged most satisfied with their day's work.

Everton had a Deadline Day to remember after pulling off the triple capture of Bernard, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

"I spoke with Andre (Gomes), too".

At worldwide level, he was also part of the Brazil team who won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and played for his country at their home World Cup in 2014.

The Toffees have also signed Brazilian winger Bernard on a permanent deal.

With his tenacious rebounding and defensive prowess, Knicks fans hoped that Noah would be a fitting defensive anchor for the team. That came a day after Noah yelled expletives at his coach upon being removed from a game against the Golden State Warriors.

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.

Everton have won the race for his signature with the attacking midfielder signing a four-year contract.

And speaking about his desires for his new side, Mina revealed he has sights set high.

The duo should, instead, be available for the home clash with Southampton a week later and may line up alongside fellow new recruits Digne, Richarlison and Bernard. I am also determined to do my best for Everton'.

Having not had any game time since scoring in Colombia's loss to England in the World Cup Round of 16, it is thought Mina would be lacking match fitness.
