Barcelona sign centre-back Yerry Mina early

Barcelona announces signing Yerry Mina

The addition will provide some respite to the Catalan side as Spanish media reports suggest that veteran Javier Mascherano is close to leaving to join Chinese side Hebei China Fortune.

Barcelona says it has signed Colombia defender Yerry Mina from Brazilian club Palmeiras. Mina's transfer included a transaction fee of $14.2 million.

However, Mina has joined early, signing a five-and-a-half year deal with a release clause of €100 million (£88.5 million), with hopes he can settle quickly in La Liga.

"He will bring a physical presence as his 1.95-metre frame suggests but he is also a quick, ball-playing defender".

He will be Barcelona's second signing of the January transfer window after Philippe Coutinho's 160 million-euro capture from English topflight, Liverpool. "The Colombian, who is joining from Palmeiras, uses his aerial prowess to impose himself and score goals".

Born 23 years ago in the town of Guachené, department of Cauca, the new Barça defender previously played with the Colombian teams Deportivo Pasto and Santa Fe, and the Brazilian club Palmeiras. He has also scored another three with the Colombian national team with whom he has now made nine appearances since his debut on 8 June 2016.

The statement added: "Yerry Mina now comes to Barca with the opportunity to continue developing as a footballer following his move to Europe".
