Everton have completed a season-long loan deal for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.

The Everton manager also let Ashley Williams leave the side on loan to join Stoke City and Ramiro Funes Mori was allowed to join Villarreal.

Both clubs are in the market to add another centre-back to their squad before the transfer window for Premier League clubs to make signings slams shut on Thursday at 5pm.

Mourinho was the man in charge at Stamford Bridge when Zouma was signed from St Etienne in 2014 but after a promising start to his career in west London the 23-year-old fell out-of-favour under Antonio Conte.

The Portugal global joined Barcelona from Valencia for an initial €35m two years ago but has struggled to make an impact at the club. Richarlison spoke about both players in a recent press conference.

Barca had hoped to sell him permanently but initial interest from Arsenal and Valencia failed to materialise into a serious offer.

Manchester United had expected to sign Mina after submitting a fresh £35million bid for the Colombia defender earlier this week. There's been plenty of names, clubs who have been after him.

It might be hard for him to get regular playing time at Chelsea this season, so sending him out on loan makes sense.

Bernard, 25, left Shakhtar Donetsk when his contract expired and had been linked to a host of European clubs.

"I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me", Bernard told the club's wbesite.
