FOOTBALL- La Liga giants Barcelona have signed Colombia defender Yerry Mina from Brazilian club Palmeiras for 11.8 million euros ($14 million).

Mina is the first Columbian to play for the Spanish club ever.

Barcelona had to advance Mina's signing by five months because of the recent injury to France international Samuel Umtiti.
