Everton will pay £2m as loan fees for the 25-year-old Portuguese midfielder.

"It's important the club want to fight for something. This is a great opportunity for me," Mina said.

Barcelona however reserve the right to buy back the 23-year-old towering defender, who they signed in January for £10.44m from Brazilian side Palmeiras.

Speaking about Mina, who scored three goals for Colombia at the 2018 World Cup in Russia before bowing out at the round of 16, Everton manager Marco Silva said;

"He has good knowledge of the position he plays and he is good on the ball as well," added Silva.

"He will contribute in the build-up play and will also be very strong at defensive and offensive set-pieces."

Marco Silva’s side also signed Brazilian winger Bernard Anicio Caldeira on a four-year deal. The 25-year-old was out of contract after leaving Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk in June.
