Norwich City sign Leroy Fer from FC Twente

Leroy Fer

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 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.

"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

Javier Garrido, Nathan Redmond, are the other four players to join the Canaries this summer.
