There was a predictably frantic conclusion to the last hours of business, the Premier League waiting to register ten players after the 5pm deadline, deal sheets submitted pending medicals and the agreement of personal terms.

He has played 14 times for Brazil, scoring once, with his last worldwide appearance coming at the 2014 World Cup.

Barcelona originally purchased the Palmeiras player in January, paying 11.8 million euros, a very small amount considering the prices that were being paid for other centre-backs at the time.

Everton's new manager wanted two central defenders before the deadline and was hoping to get his wish with a second loan signing, that of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea.

The Brazil winger, a free agent having allowed his contract with Ukraine's champions to expire at the end of last season, signed a four-year contract at Goodison Park.

One of Mina's goals in Russian Federation was against Everton's England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to send a dramatic last 16 tie into extra-time.

However he is keen to quell any doubts over whether he can make an instant impact due to fitness.
