RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Barcelona have struck a deal to sign Colombia international defender Yerry Mina from Brazilian outfit Palmeiras, according to media reports.
The 22-year-old will arrive at the Camp Nou next July after Barcelona agreed to trigger his nine million-euro release clause, the Estado de S.Paulo newspaper said.
The Blaugrana had expressed a wish for the center-back to arrive in January but are said to have changed their mind after talks with Palmeiras officials during the week.
Mina has made 32 appearances for Palmeiras since his 3.5 million-euro move from Colombia's Independiente Santa Fe in May 2016.
He has been capped nine times for Colombia's national team, having made his international debut last year.
