One of the biggest disappointments of our season, Colombia’s 2018 World Cup star Yerry Mina, failed to really have much of an impact at Goodison Park. The centre-back arrived from Barcelona in a €30.25milllion (£26.9m) deal from Barcelona last summer, but often struggled to convince Marco Silva that he was worthy of a place in the starting line-up. And the latest reports now indicate the defender could be set for a move away from Merseyside already.

According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, the Toffees have decided to send Mina out on loan for the upcoming season, with Turkish giants Fenerbahce seemingly the frontrunners to sign his services.

Indeed, the report claims the 24-year-old will join the side after the conclusion of this year’s Copa America, and is a clear indication that the defender does not seem to figure in Silva’s plans for the future.

Valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, Mina made just the ten starts in the Premier League and a further three appearances off the substitutes bench, scoring one goal. After a starring role in Colombia’s run to the Last-16 of the World Cup – including a dramatic injury-time equaliser against England – Mina was expected to bring some power and defensive resilience to our backline.

Unfortunately for him and for Everton, that hasn’t been the case, and it now appears that after just one solitary season at the club, he will be off to Turkey to refind his worth.

  • Signing a player of International duty alone is always risky especially with such a small sample size. He pressed with goals but defensively ews always a risk.
    Think Ben Gibson is wasting away at Burnley now he is a very good CB quick tidy passer leader LCB too & has PL experience.
    Championship has a lot of solid CBs Adam Webster I really like. Even Milwall’s Jake Cooper 6’5 has 7 goals 7 assists. Eric Konso Brentford who always recruit well & Semi Anjayi only a year left wouldn’t cosy a lot.
    Def going to need 1 prob 2 with Williams going & Zouma.

    If want to spend a decent bit Malang Sarr from Nice only 20 would be a brilliant signing reminds me of Diop but left footed tall strong but quick & good on ball & also Marseille have to sell bc FPP Kamara is huge young talent CB.
