New Everton Trio Claim Shirt Numbers For Season

Everton's trio of international transfer-deadline day arrivals have secured their shirt numbers for the forthcoming campaign.

Colombian World Cup star Yerry Mina will be the first outfield player to wear the number 13 jersey for the Blues. The former Barcelona defender, who has signed a five-year Goodison Park contract, follows in the stead of goalkeeping quartet Jason Kearton, Paul Gerrard, Steve Simonsen and Iain Turner in having 13 on his back.

Brazil international Bernard is Everton’s new number 20. The forward completed his move to Goodison Park on Thursday, penning a four-year deal.

Bernard takes over a shirt previously worn by players including Joseph Yobo, Steven Pienaar and Ross Barkley. It was most recently vacated when Bryan Oviedo headed to Sunderland in January 2017.

Portugal 2016 European Championship winner Andre Gomes claims the number eight shirt previously allocated to Kevin Mirallas. The 29-cap former Benfica and Valencia midfielder has agreed terms on a season-long loan move from Barcelona.

Everton FA Cup-winning pair Graham Stuart and Paul Rideout have both worn the Club's number eight. So, too, have striking trio Tomasz Radzinski, Andy Johnson and Louis Saha.

You can buy the new Everton home and away Umbro shirts printed with any of Mina, Bernard or Gomes's names and numbers now, in store at Everton One and Everton Two or online here.
