Norwich City sign Leroy Fer from FC Twente
Norwich City have signed Netherlands international midfielder Leroy Fer from FC Twente for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old has agreed a four-year deal and joins compatriot Ricky van Wolfswinkel among the six new arrivals at Carrow Road this summer.
Fer scored 21 goals in 71 appearances for Twente following a move from Feyenoord in 2011.
"He's a very versatile Dutch international," manager Chris Hughton told the club website.
Fer in the news
Fer made headlines in December when he bought a £22,000 horse for his girlfriend before realising she could not keep it as she lived in an apartment
"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."
Although a full international with two caps, Fer was also part of the Netherlands Under-21 squad for this summer's European Championship.
Everton were set to sign Fer last season but pulled out of the move after concerns following a medical.
Javier Garrido, Nathan Redmond, Martin Olsson and Carlo Nash are the other four players to join the Canaries this summer.
