Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer has joined Premier League side QPR.
The Canaries have received a club record fee for the powerful Dutchman, who has penned a three-year contract at Loftus Road.
QPR have chased the former FC Twente star all summer, and have finally got their man.
Norwich's previous record sale was Dean Ashton back in 2006, who signed for West Ham United in a £7.25million move.
It's understood that Rangers have paid in excess of £8million to land Fer, although the deal could eventually be worth £10million to Norwich.
Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer says that he had to continue playing in the Premier League to fulfil his international ambitions.
The 24-year-old underwent a medical with QPR yesterday, and is expected to complete an £8million move shortly.
QPR have pursued the powerful midfield player all summer, and have previously seen a bid rejected.
However, they now look like they've got their man.
Speaking to dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, Fer said that it was imperative that he continued his career in the top flight.
