Why Jose Mourinho failed to sign Yerry Mina

Share

Everton submitted a deal sheet to the Football Association in order to secure extra time to finalise all the details of the move, and Zouma will now be preparing himself to join up with his new teammates.

Yerry Mina says he is determined "to fight for something" at Everton after completing a £27 million ($35m) move from Barcelona.

The Toffees made a late move for the 23-year-old on deadline day but had to wait until Friday to learn if their bid had been successful.

The French global spent last season out on loan at Stoke City but couldn't prevent them from being relegated from the Premier League and he's now facing an uncertain future back at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri. They also bought in left-back Joe Bryan from Bristol City, plus three players on loan - goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla, Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto and United's Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Chelsea's stance over the interest from Manchester United gives Everton a major boost to land him on a loan deal, with the Toffees going into overdrive on deadline day.

Manchester United's search for a defender this summer was so embarrassing that it could even be described as farcical, however, it has been revealed that they actually turned down to the chance to sign Yerry Mina.

Gomes also followed Mina to Everton on loan.

Apart from the Red Devils, fellow Premier League outfit Everton are also keen to prise Zouma out of the Stamford Bridge.
