"This is why I am here".

For the first time, the Premier League deadline was moved forward to the day before the season kicks off when United host Leicester City on Friday. It is the best league in the world.

'They are historically among the four most successful clubs in England and when I found out about the club and what the manager wanted from me, I was happy.

"Every discussion we've had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game".

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

"We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

Mina scored three times in three games in Russian Federation, including against Everton's England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with a dramatic stoppage-time header to send their last-16 tie to extra-time.

The Toffees have splashed a total of £88m the transfer window, after also capturing Richarlison and Digne earlier on in the summer.

Late move: Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, who starred at the World Cup for Colombia, is off to Everton.

But Tottenham 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.

And speaking about his desires for his new side, Mina revealed he has sights set high. But I was also convinced Everton could improve me and that I would be able to show my best as a player here'.

While Bernard was finalising his transfer at Everton's Finch Farm training ground a club delegation led by the director of football, Marcel Brands, concluded deals for Mina and Gomes in Barcelona. "This is why I am here", he told his club website. "I am ready to train and work".
