New Everton defender Yerry Mina says that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League.

New Everton defender Yerry Mina has revealed that he is looking forward to the challenge of competing in the Premier League.

The Toffees completed the signing of Mina on transfer deadline day, with the Premier League outfit said to have paid an initial £27.2m for the centre-back.

Mina had been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United following an impressive 2018 World Cup with Colombia, but Everton secured his signature.

"It is important that the club want to fight for something," Mina told Everton TV. "This is why I am here. I have watched the Premier League for a long time.

"It is the best league in the world. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here. I know about Everton's players and I look forward to being able to play with my new team.

"I have spoken a lot to the coach and I know his passion for Everton and determination to be successful. I am also determined to do my best for Everton."

The 23-year-old only joined Barcelona from Palmeiras in the January transfer window.
