Vincent Julien Sasso (born 16 February 1991) is a French footballer who plays for English club Sheffield Wednesday as a fullback or a central defender. He scored his first and second goal for the Owls on Valentines day 2017 against Blackburn, in a 2-1 home win for Wednesday.

Club career[edit]

Sasso was born in Saint-Cloud, Paris. On 18 June 2008 he signed his first professional contract with FC Nantes, agreeing to a three-year deal. He made his professional debut on 31 July 2010 in a 2–4 penalty shootout away loss against US Boulogne for the season's Coupe de la Ligue,[1] and went on to spend two years with the first team in Ligue 1, contributing with 20 games to a ninth-place in 2011–12.

In the 2012 summer, Sasso joined S.C. Beira-Mar in Portugal for three years.[2] He scored his first goal for the Aveiro club on 6 October, putting the visitors ahead in an eventual 1–2 defeat at S.L. Benfica;[3] his team would eventually suffer relegation, but he had already left in late January 2013 to fellow league side S.C. Braga, penning a contract until June 2017.[4]

On 30 June 2015, Sasso was loaned to Sheffield Wednesday from the English Championship in a season-long move.[5] After making only 18 competitive appearances, he left.[6]

In August 2016, Sasso returned to Wednesday after signing a permanent one-year contract.[7]
