Fer winging way to QPR

QPR have announced the signing of Leroy Fer from Norwich for an undisclosed fee with the midfielder penning a three-year deal at Loftus Road.

The 24-year-old, who scored for Holland in their 2-0 World Cup group stage victory over Chile and has collected seven international caps to date, only moved to Norwich last summer but has left the Norfolk club following their relegation from the english Premier League.

Rangers passed the Canaries on their way up through the play-offs and manager Harry Redknapp has swooped to bring in Fer, who continues the summer recruitment in west London following moves for Rio Ferdinand, Steven Caulker and Jordon Mutch - with Mauricio Isla brought in on loan.

"Leroy's arrival is a massive boost for us," Redknapp said. "He's another excellent signing and I'm delighted we've been able to get him to QPR."

Redknapp stressed following Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Hull that he wanted to bring in new faces and could still add further signings after securing Fer's signature.
