Bernard was first to sign on deadline day after receiving a work permit to move to the Premier League following five seasons at Shakhtar Donetsk.

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.

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.

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.

A loan fee of around £2million was agreed, with Everton also picking up the cost of the player's wages.

"Everton is historically the fourth most successful club in England", said Bernard.

I worked hard during my holiday and now I am ready to play and do important things with the Club. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.

Both sides have reached a deal and it will shortly be made official.

The Catalan club have included a buy-back clause in the deal with the Toffees.

Moments later they also confirmed that Portugal global Gomes would join the Premier League side on loan.

"I did not need any convincing to come here". Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.
