It’s official. Sheffield United finally have their man, and have completed the £22million deal for 20 cap Norwegian international Sander Berge from Belgian club Genk. The news has been officially announced by SkySports and the Official Sheffield United Twitter page.

The signing of Berge, 21, has yet again broken Sheffield United’s record transfer fee, passing the £20million paid for striker Oli McBurnie from Swansea City last summer.

The midfielder has put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal, and become Chris Wilder’s third signing thus far in the January transfer window, which closes tomorrow at 11:00pm, following the free transfer of Jack Rodwell, and the seven figure signing of Jack Robinson from Nottingham Forest.

Midfielder Berge comes with UEFA Champions League experience, having featured for Genk in their 6 group fixtures, which included twice against reigning Champions Liverpool. He also has International experience with Norway, with 20 caps to his name, and scored once against Malta in a 2-0 win last September.

He could feature for the Blades, for the first time, in tomorrow’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.

Elsewhere, SkyBet Championship side Luton Town have taken former Sheffield United loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
