Queens Park Rangers are set to complete the signing of Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer for a fee rumoured to be £8 million. The Dutch international is expected to be manager Harry Redknapp’s second midfield capture of the summer along with the £5 million addition of Jordan Mutch from Cardiff.
The powerful midfielder who scored 4 goals in 32 appearances for the Canaries last season will add much needed strength and power to a midfield which already has the likes of Mutch, Joey Barton and Alejandro Faurlin. Since Norwich’s relegation from the top tier of English football, Fer’s future has been the subject of constant speculation as many clubs around Europe sought the Dutch midfielder; however it is QPR who look to have clinched the deal.
Add to this the captures of veteran defender Rio Ferdinand, Cardiff’s Steven Caulker and Juventus Mauricio Isla on a season long loan, it is proving to be a fruitful transfer window so far down at Loftus Road with a few more additions expected.
