Many Everton fans have been left flocking to some news on Yerry Mina and his current contract situation at Goodison Park.
Writing in his latest piece for The Athletic, Patrick Boyland has now confirmed that the Colombia international is yet to sign a new deal at the Merseyside club, as his current one expires at the end of the season.
Should Mina play ahead of Holgate or Keane at Everton?
The journalist claims that there is a decision now to be made on his future, as he becomes more important to the team’s hopes.
Given that Rafa Benitez’s side conceded from another corner at the weekend against West Ham United, attention immediately drew to the absence of Mina, who at six-foot-five-inches tall certainly helps them aerially in both boxes.
He is also reliable with the ball at his feet, as he has averaged a higher pass success (76.4%) in the Premier League so far this season compared to Ben Godfrey, Mason Holgate and Michael Keane (Whoscored).

These Toffees supporters flocked to the news as it was shared on Twitter:
“He’s easily our best defender by a long stretch, its a no brainer, get him signed up”
“No decision needed he’s 27 and our best defender. 4-year deal don’t lose him”
“We simply have to give him a new contract, he’s our best centre-back by far”
“I don’t understand what the decision is that has to be made. He’s comfortably our best centre-half. The decision is easy”
“He’s becoming one of the first names on the team sheet, so it’s vital we sign him to a new contract”
“No brainer for me. Sign him up.”
