Yerry Mina joins Barcelona

La Liga Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina joins Barcelona

Barcelona sign centre-back Yerry Mina early

Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Colombia worldwide Yerry Mina from Palmeiras on a five-and-a-half year deal.

Barcelona has not yet announced the agenda of the events in which Yerry Mina will participate. He played for Santa Fe before joining Palmeiras in 2016.

The midfielder, who has scored three goals in 160 appearances for Arsenal since his senior debut in 2008, has struggled to get games this campaign and featured in just seven league matches, coming on as a substitute in six of them.

The easy-going defender celebrates his goals with dance moves that often go viral online.

Mina was expected to join the Catalan club in the summer for €9 million (£7.9 million), but with Javier Mascherano on the verge of leaving in January, along with first-choice defender Samuel Umtiti now on the sidelines, the deal was brought forward.

Arpaio is also known for retaliating against political adversaries and using various freaky schemes for the sake of publicity. Arpaio told NBC News that Washington needed "fresh blood" and that he hadn't informed Trump of his decision to run.

Mina arrives to provide competition for Samuel Umtiti, Gerard Pique and Thomas Vermaelen in defence.

With a release clause amounting to €100 million (US$120.3 million) paid to the athlete's former team, Brazil's Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, Mina will bolster Barcelona's defense. He often makes runs forward and is risky in the box thanks to his vertical reach.

Mina is set to play in his first World Cup in Russian Federation this year.

Barcelona hosts Celta Vigo later Thursday in the Copa del Rey last 16. Barcelona has a nine-point lead over Atletico Madrid at the halfway point.
