OFFICIAL – Former Chelsea target Bernard joins Everton on Deadline Day

Everton have confirmed the signing of talented attacking-midfielder Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk on Deadline Day.

The Brazilian star had been recently linked also with a move to Chelsea, before joining the Toffees a few minutes before the transfer market window was closed.

Bernard told Everton’s official website: “I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me. The manager made me feel confident about playing here. 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, historically the fourth most successful club in England. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy. That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the Club showed in me. I did not need any convincing to come here. I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here.”
