The Colombia international will wear the No. 24 at the Camp Nou when he makes his debut

New Barcelona defender Yerry Mina will wear the No. 24, the club have announced. 

The No. 24 shirt has been vacant since Jeremy Mathieu left the club to move to Sporting Lisbon in the summer.

Mina completed his move to the Blaugrana from Palmeiras last week and is now eligible to make his Barcelona debut, which could come as soon as this weekend's match at Real Betis

Wearing the No. 24, the Colombia international will slot in on the roster between two other defenders: Samuel Umtiti (No. 23) and Thomas Vermaelen (No. 25).

Mina is the ninth Barcelona player to wear the No. 24, following Mathieu, Fernando Couto, Carles Puyol, Andreu Fontas, Roger Garcia, Andres Iniesta, Yaya Toure and Sergi Roberto.

There is still no word on what number Philippe Coutinho will take, however. 

Coutinho could succeed Arda Turan at No. 7, while the No. 14 jersey which will soon be left vacant by Javier Mascherano is also available for the ex-Liverpool man.
