Newcastle: Sander Berge is ‘gettable’ for the Magpies

Newcastle: Sander Berge is 'gettable' for the Magpies - Follow up

Newcastle United could make a late offer for Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Berge attracting interest

Berge has been the subject of interest from numerous Premier League clubs, with Newcastle, Arsenal, Liverpool and Fulham all listed as potential suitors, although the latter club were at one stage said to be the most serious.

There have been conflicting reports about the Magpies’ interest in the midfielder, with Keith Downie claiming that they have made a loan-with-obligation offer, while Fabrizio Romano has suggested that it is ‘not advanced’.

The Latest: Gettable for Newcastle

In an interview with GIVEMESPORT, Jones claimed that the Norwegian being linked to so many clubs is an indication that a move to Newcastle could be possible before the deadline.

The journalist said:“The only real area, right now, that I would expect any movement at Newcastle is in central midfield.

“There could still be new options put on the table. Sander Berge, for example, has been touted around everywhere.

“It makes you think he is gettable and it wouldn’t surprise me if a late option like that was to come on the table and they might take it.”

The Verdict: Get it done?

Hailed as a ‘Rolls-Royce’ by Sheffield United teammate Chris Basham, the 24-year-old has weighed in with a solid return from central midfield in the Championship this season, picking up four goals and three assists in 19 appearances.

The maestro has an international pedigree, making 32 caps for national side Norway, and he excels in a number of different areas, with an average of 0.23 non-penalty goals per 90 over the past year ranking him in the 96th percentile compared to other midfielders, while 1.54 dribbles places him in the 96th.

Toon fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 2022 calendar year?

Given that Jonjo Shelvey has arrived at the City Ground to complete a move to Nottingham Forest, Eddie Howe needs another option in the engine room, and Berge has shown that he is ready for the step up to the Premier League.
