Trialist on target for Stanley
Norwich City have confirmed the signing of Dutch international
midfielder Leroy Fer from FC Twente on a four-year deal.
The 23-year-old, who is Chris Hughton’s sixth summer signing,
scored 21 goals in 71 appearances for FC Twente after starting his
career with Feyenoord.
Fer, who has two full caps, captained Holland at Under-17 and
Under-19 levels and he was a key part of their European Under-21
Championship team which made it to the semi-finals earlier this
summer, scoring twice during the group stages.
He joins Javier Garrido, Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, Nathan Redmond,
Martin Olsson and Carlo Nash in boosting Hughton’s options for the
2013-14 Barclays Premier League season.
Hughton said: “We are really pleased to have acquired the
signature of a player with the qualities that Leroy has.
“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
