It is believed that Everton want to take Zouma on loan, which may be a more attractive offer for Chelsea if the 23-year-old is still part of their future plans.

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.

Bernard, 25, has spent the last five seasons with Shakhtar but will now move to Everton on a four-year contract.

Valverde had made it clear that Mina's World Cup had not forced him to change his opinion on the player and with six centre-backs as well as six non-EU players at the club, Barca were always likely to sell. He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs.

"Everton is a club with a great structure and a lot of tradition".

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.

"I did not need any convincing to come here".

Everton struck deals to sign both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona on Thursday, as well as completing a move for Brazil worldwide Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk before the transfer deadline.

Usually in cases such as this clubs can approach the Premier League and request more time to complete the deal, if they can provide all the necessary paperwork and prove that the completing the deal is just a matter of dotting i's and crossing t's. He was, in his defence, one of their better players.
