Everton have announced the permanent signing of Andre Gomes on a five-year deal from Barcelona. The 25-year-old Portugal international moves to Goodison Park for a £22million fee following a successful loan spell last season, and is delighted to have put pen-to-paper.
He told evertontv: “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. “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.” Everton manager Marco Silva was delighted to complete a deal to bring Gomes back to Merseyside, adding: “Andre was a really important player for us last season and I think we were really able to help him, too.
“It was a good decision to bring Andre to the club and we made it one of our priorities to get him back. I am delighted we have been able to do that as he is a quality player and we were so happy with what he gave us.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
