Everton have completed the signing of Andre Gomes from Barcelona.

The Portugal midfielder has moved on a 25-million Euro deal, agreeing a five-year contract with the Merseysiders.

Euro 2016 winner Gomes had an impressive loan spell at Goodison Park last season and says he's looking forward to joining the Toffees.

"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 boss Marco Silva feels the midfielder has fitted in well at the club.

"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.

"He is someone who has shown he can operate to a high level in the Premier League and for our club, and I know our fans will be fantastic in welcoming him back.

"What Andre learned about the club, our fans and our vision convinced him that this is where he wants to play his football and I know he shares the big ambitions that we have going forwards."
