Sasso returns to Wednesday

19 August 2016

Vincent Sasso has re-joined Sheffield Wednesday on a permanent deal from SC Braga for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

Sasso spent the entire 2015/16 campaign on loan at Hillsborough from the Portuguese outfit.

During his season-long stint with Wednesday, the 25-year-old posted 19 appearances in total and proved a valuable addition to the squad.

The Frenchman went from strength to strength during the 2015/16 season and now provides further competition at the heart of the rearguard.

Sasso will wear shirt number 39 during his time at Hillsborough.

He told “I’m really happy to be back and this is better than a loan move for me.

“I know the staff, the club and all the people working here. This helps a lot because I know exactly where I’m coming into and hopefully I can help the team.

“We went from strength to strength last season, it was really good for the fans and a great experience for all the players.

“In part it was difficult for me because I had a small problem with my knee but now I feel 100%.

“I am much more accustomed to the Championship, especially the physical side of the game. I know when the referee will blow his whistle and when he won’t.

“It is different in Europe and where I have been playing my football. I understand the intensity and I know exactly what to expect. There will be no problem for me.”
