Fulham signed Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico on a season-long loan deal.

Silva, who has also sealed deals for Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes as well, lifted the lid on why he has lured Bernard to Everton.

Colombian centre-back Mina will join in a deal worth €30.25 million with another €1.5 in potential add-ons, Barcelona said.

Manchester United had expected to sign Mina after submitting a fresh £35million bid for the Colombia defender earlier this week.

Everton officials were in Barcelona on Thursday, to put both players through a medical so their moves could go through ahead of the 5pm deadline for the English transfer window. "This is an ambitious club which is aiming to achieve real success with Marco Silva's ideas and the new players coming in".

Hoping to get back to the level he showed in his first season at Valencia, Gomes will play on loan at Goodison Park for the season, with Everton paying Barca €2.25million for the right to take him for the campaign.

"I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me", the midfielder said.

Bernard burst onto the scene at the 2014 World Cup for Brazil, but his club career led him away from the worldwide scene.

"The manager made me feel confident about playing here".

The Brazil global signed a four-year contract earlier today, having joined on a free transfer after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk as a free agent earlier this summer.
