Barcelona have confirmed that midfielder Andre Gomes has joined Everton in a deal worth €25 million plus add-ons.

The 25-year-old spent last season on loan with the Toffees and has now signed for the club on a permanent basis.

Gomes has penned a five-year deal with the Premier League club and has spoken about his delight at making the move.

“I’m really happy to sign the contract with Everton – it wasn’t hard to decide, it was an easy decision and I’m very happy to have made it,” he said.

“I know the Club made a massive effort to sign me and I’m very happy and thankful to them. I said during the year that I felt part of a family and that is the most important thing to me.

“Last year was a really good experience for me. I just wanted to feel part of something special and I found it here. It was good for me in that moment and right now, after signing for Everton, it’s even better.”
