Sander Berge's Wikipedia page changed claiming Sheff Utd star has completed Deadline Day Newcastle transfer | The Sun
SANDER BERGE’S Wikipedia page has been edited to claim the Sheffield United star has completed a move to Newcastle.
Berge, 24, is being tipped for a stunning deadline day move away from Bramall Lane.
And Newcastle are reportedly leading the race for his signature.
Eddie Howe is a big fan of Berge as he looks to boost his midfield options.
The Toon boss is ready to pay £20million as he seeks to replace Nottingham Forest-bound Jonjo Shelvey.
And Berge was not in the Blades’ squad for their dramatic FA Cup draw against Wrexham on Sunday.

However, the Norway international’s Wikipedia page has already been changed to claim he’s made his move to St James’ Park.
On Tuesday morning, it read “Newcastle United” under Berge’s “current team.”
But Toon fans won’t be counting their chickens until there is an official announcement.
Berge has also been linked with Liverpool this month.

However, Jurgen Klopp is now thought to be targeting a move for Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante instead.
Reflecting on Berge’s future, Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom said on Sunday: “He’s not here because we have been asked not to use him.
“Our club is speaking to other clubs regarding him. It doesn’t mean he’s going anywhere, Sander is happy here.
“But the situation we find ourselves in mid-takeover, transfer embargo, no clarity on which way it is going and financial issues.
“One way to resolve the issues is to sell a player. Everyone knows my thoughts on it.”
