Gomes first played at Benfica for three years where he largely contributed in helping the club win its first domestic treble in history. In 2014, he joined Valencia and later on, in 2016, he signed with FC Barcelona.
“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” Gomes told EvertonTV.
“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.”
He added: “I think the ambition here is not only for me, I think it's for all the players, the fans and the Club. We are all excited for that.”
Commenting on the deal, Everton manager Marco Silva told EvertonTV that” “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.”
