Sheffield Wednesday have signed Saido Berahino on a deal until the end of the season, although they have the option to extend that by 12 months.
Understand Saido Berahino has initially joined Sheffield #SWFC on a deal until the end of the season.
Wednesday do have the option to extend by a further 12 months.
Berahino has taken a huge pay cut to move to Hillsborough. 🦉👇https://t.co/wsObS59wc4

The striker was a surprising Deadline Day arrival at Hillsborough, with the club confirming the ex-Stoke City man had arrived on a permanent basis.
At the time, the Owls didn’t outline the terms of the deal, but reporter Dom Howson has revealed that the 28-year-old will join for the rest of the campaign, with the League One side having the option to extend it until 2023.
Given Berahino’s reputation in English football, as he has been considered a troublesome character over the years, many see this as a good decision from Wednesday.
Plus, the striker’s desire to play for the club, and reunite with Darren Moore, was evident by the fact he took a pay cut to make the move.
Do you remember which player scored Sheffield Wednesday’s first goal in each of the last 15 seasons?
Therefore, fans feel this is a low-risk deal that could pay off and here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Smart business, if he's no good we don't have to commit and if he comes good we've got the option to extend. Smart business from Moore again UTO!

Sheffield Wednesday doing logical signings… well I never. Good move this by club. Dangles a carrot to get him firing this season.

Sounds good and he’s obviously up for it if he’s willing to take a cut

Sensible move by the club, only worry is if he does well and then gets snapped up by another club at the end of the season

If he gets us promoted that'll do me 👍
