Norwich sign Fer

Created on 14 Jul., 2013 3:38 PM GMT

Norwich have completed their sixth signing of the close-season by bringing Leroy Fer to the club.

The midfielder joins on a four-year deal from Dutch club Twente, subject to international clearance.

He becomes the latest arrival in a busy few weeks at Carrow Road, joining fellow new recruits Javier Garrido, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Nathan Redmond, Carlo Nash and Martin Olsson.

Fer, who has played for the Netherlands at every level, was a mainstay of the Twente midfield during his time in Enschende, making 71 appearances and scoring 21 goals.

Manager Chris Hughton was quick to express his delight at securing a player of Fer's calibre.

"We are really pleased to have acquired the signature of a player with the qualities that Leroy has," he told the club's official website.

"He’s a very versatile Dutch international and at 23 he has that pleasing balance of having acquired experience playing over 100 games in the Dutch League - but still having plenty of time ahead of him to continue his development as a player here with us at Norwich City."
