Sheffield United have confirmed the club record signing of midfielder Sander Berge from Genk, in a deal believed to be worth over £20m.
Berge signed on Thursday afternoon, putting pen to paper on a contract which will tie him to the club until the summer of 2024.
Manager Chris Wilder told the club's website: "The board have really backed us in this window to bring in players of the quality of Sander. He fits the bill in so many ways. He's a Norwegian international who has played 20 times for his country, he's also played Champions League football and we're delighted he has decided to come to Bramall Lane.

"Sander is someone we have known about for quite a while now. We have tracked him over a sustained period of time, he was a player we highlighted as someone who could come in and really improve us and we are thrilled he's agreed to come here.
"When we sat down with Sander it was clear that he was really excited about coming here and that was great to see. I think this signing just shows how far we have come in a short space of time, that we are now attracting the likes of Sander to the football club. It's a brilliant signing for us."
