Sheffield United have come back for Genk star Sander Berge, having been keen in the summer, and reports of their concrete interest in him emerged from the Belgium press.

Earlier today, Het Laatste Nieuws reported the Blades have ‘substantially increased’ their offer after their initial proposal of €20m was turned down by the Jupiler Pro League side. It was suggested the new bid is fluctuating between €20-25m.

Het Belang van Limburg now explains the negotiations between the two clubs for the Norway international are in the final stage.

With all parties involved in the deal busy discussing throughout Wednesday, there was no ‘white smoke’ for the transfer. In addition to this, there was radio silence at the Belgium club and Bramall Lane.

It looks like there’s been new developments since HBVL printed the story in today’s newspaper as their online edition states Sheffield United and Genk have found an agreement for the transfer fee and bonuses.

Berge has ‘left for England’ to undergo medical examinations with Sheffield United.

Genk will be without their key man for the second half of the season.
