Sheffield United sign Sander Berge from Genk

Sheffield United are the surprise package of the Premier League this season but not only on the pitch, it seems. After great performances in the league, they got a lot of sympathies from the fans all over the world, but now they are surprising off the pitch as well.

The Blades have completed the signing of a highly rated Sander Berge from Genk. The young midfielder joins from the Belgian side who played in UEFA Champions League group stages this season. He was also a big part in Genk’s title triumph in the league and now the Norway international has joined the Premier League side.

This seems a bit of a coup for Sheffield United, as Berge is highly touted and was monitored by several European clubs. Some reports were even suggesting Chelsea and Liverpool were scouting the 21-year-old. None of those deals happened and Sheffield United swept in with a club-record fee of 22 million pounds.
