Portugal global Gomes endured even greater struggles at LaLiga's champions and has found an escape route in the shape of a season-long loan at Goodison Park, which will cost the Toffees €2.25million.

Everton trebled their tally of summer signings from Barcelona on a productive deadline day for new manager Marco Silva.

Gomes and Mina could be registered in time to face Wolves in the Premier League opener this Saturday, but that game may come too soon for them as they look to bed in at Everton.

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.

All three participated in last year's F1 eSports Series finals with Jacks placing ninth overall while Kruytj ended up 14th. Construction of the facility is underway and the 2018 F1 eSports Series will kick off this October.

The Brazilian said new Everton boss Marco Silva convinced him to join the Toffees.

Barca have inserted a buy-back option for the Colombian worldwide, who caught the eye after a series of impressive performances at the Russia World Cup. "He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs", he said in a statement. That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the club showed in me. "I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here".

The defender will leave Camp Nou despite only joining in January, but the Catalan side have included a buy-back option in the deal.

Likewise, Portuguese worldwide Gomes has failed to establish himself as a first team regular since joining from Valencia for an initial 35 million euro fee in 2016.
