Talking to evertontv (via Liverpool Echo), Brands hailed the Everton fans for making Gomes feel at home, with the Dutchman claiming that in striking up a positive relationship with the Gomes, the fans made it easier for him to negotiate with the La Liga giants.

Marcel Brands has credited Everton fans for being integral in bringing Andre Gomes back to Goodison Park this summer.



Asked about how signing Gomes could be perceived as a huge statement, Brands said: Yes, but I have to be honest, the biggest help in that was our fans.



The Toffees were able to complete the permanent signing of Gomes for £22million in June, having had the Barcelona midfielder on a season-long loan last season.

When you consider the amount of contact Wilfried Zaha is currently receiving on social media from Everton fans, begging and calling on him to move to Merseyside, it does make you question the impact fans can have.

Brands’ words definitely made me proud to call myself an Evertonian.

Going into this summer’s transfer window, Gomes was considered Everton’s primary target, with the club and fans alike desperate to bring the Portugal international back to Merseyside.
