The relationship between Barcelona and Everton is believed to be strong, with left-back Lucas Digne already moving to Goodison Park from the Nou Camp in this window.

Multiple reports said the Toffees also had reached a deal with Chelsea for the loan of defender Kurt Zouma, though that has yet to be confirmed with the deadline passed.

Everton have beaten the clock to secure the transfer of Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Bernard before the window closed, the club announced on their official website.

The Colombia centre back had a medical in Barcelona after Everton agreed a £28 million deal with the Catalan club, who say there is a €30 million buyback clause in the deal.

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. Everton will pay 2.6 million euros for the year's loan.

However former Everton manager Allardyce has spoken out on his concerns as to whether Marco Silva will be able to deal with the problem of "excess players".

"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", the midfielder said. He has achieved really good things at other clubs. This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here. While Bernard was finalising his transfer at Everton's Finch Farm training ground a club delegation led by the director of football, Marcel Brands, concluded deals for Mina and Gomes in Barcelona.

"I have watched the Premier League for a long time".
