Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to their incredible deadline day, and let’s just say spirits are high on the blue half of Merseyside.
Everton confirmed the signing of Bernard on Thursday afternoon, but without a centre back this transfer window would have been a disaster.
Within minutes of the Bernard announcement though, Barcelona gave Everton fans the news they’d be waiting for, confirming that both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes are now Toffees.
Mina is especially important, as with the departures of Ashley Williams and Ramiro Funes Mori the squad was dangerously light in the heart of defence.
The towering Colombian has joined on a permanent deal, and will immediately partner Michael Keane in the heart of defence.
There must have been a three-for-two deal at Barcelona, as Gomes will follow his teammate to Goodison.
The 6 ft 2 midfielder was fantastic for Valencia, but hasn’t quite lived up to expectations at Barcelona, and will look to revive his career in the Premier League.
Fans are absolutely losing it over the double deal, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Damn. Transfer Deadline Day, my best day, since I was sworn in as American Citizen. Everton pull in Bernard! Yerry Mina! and André Gomes! That on top of Richarlison and Lucas Digne! Genuinely cannot remember a season starting with so much beautiful ill-placed False Hope 🙌🙌🙌

I’d say so yeah, it’s not looking like quantity over quality like last season

If we get Mina, Bernard and possible Gomes & then get rid of Bolasie, Besic and Ramirez then give Brands a medal. Outstanding work if we pull that off #EFC
