Barcelona have announced that André Gomes has signed for Everton on a season-long loan.

The club released a statement which revealed that he will cost Everton 2.25 million euros for the season-long loan.

Everton will also play the player's full wages for the duration of his loan at Goodison Park.  This announcement came moments before the transfer window closed at 5pm GMT in Britain.

The Portugal international also had offers from West Ham and Valencia but opted for the 'Toffees'. He joins Lucas Digne at Everton, a player who arrived at Barcelona at the same time he did, with similar levels of success.

Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016, however has since struggled to gain regular first-team football at Camp Nou. 

“I’m delighted to sign for this fantastic club - it’s a good day for me,” said Gomes.

“Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.  

“Every discussion we’ve had was very important in making me feel his confidence about my game. Everybody in Portugal knows how Marco Silva works and his abilities as a coach.
 
“For me, it was really good to speak to him because I know how good he is and I feel motivated to work with him and to play for Everton, a great club.”
