Sheffield United reignited their interest in Sander Berge after they failed in their attempts to sign the Genk star last summer.
Various reports coming out of Belgium explained the Blades submitted a €20m bid for the midfielder, but the Jupiler Pro League side turned it down.
On January 28th, the Daily Mail in England reported Chris Wilder’s side were discussing a £27m (€32m) deal with Genk for the Norway international.
These claims have been picked up by the Belgian press and they decided to get in touch with Genk for an update.
Wednesday’s edition of Het Belang van Limburg explains the ‘size of this bid (£27m) was not confirmed by Genk’.
Genk’s sporting director Dimitri de Conde has already admitted he isn’t sure if the 21-year-old will still be at the club beyond the January window.
Earlier today, HLN explained the negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing and Sheffield United are ‘planning a new and improved bid’ for Berge.
HBVL also stated the English club and Genk continue to negotiate and add that Berge is no longer reluctant to leave Genk this month, if the whole operation seems right to him.
