Swansea City set to sign QPR’s Fer

Leroy Fer

Leroy Fer has won 11 caps for the Netherlands

Swansea City are set to make Leroy Fer their first summer signing after agreeing a fee, reported to be £4.75m, for him with Queens Park Rangers.

Fer made nine appearances on loan with the Swans last season and is expected to sign a permanent deal on Tuesday.

The Netherlands midfielder, 26, had a year to run on his QPR contract but had stated his desire to remain with Francesco Guidolin’s team.

Swansea are also expected to conclude a deal for Ajax’s Mike van der Hoorn.

Defender Hoorn, a Netherlands U21 international, is understood to have agreed personal terms.

Fer joined QPR on a three-year deal from Norwich City in August 2014 for a reported £8m.

He was part of the Rangers side relegated from the Premier League in 2014-15 and suffered the same fate with Norwich in the previous season.

Swansea will go into the 2016-17 season under new ownership after an American consortium bought a controlling stake in the club.
